Poets, artists, visitors, and all those who love the island of Ireland are inspired by the beauty of its magnificent natural landscape. In this comprehensively illustrated guide to the whole island, Charles Holland, Emeritus Fellow Trinity College, Dublin, and formerly Professor of Geology and Mineralogy, describes this wonderful scenery and places it in its geological context. He explains why the scenery looks as it does, how the land beneath our feet has been formed and why the landscape changes, sometimes dramatically, from lush pasture to mountain and moorland. This book is written for all those who want to understand the fabric of the island's scenery; for those who wonder why Ireland looks as it does; and for those who wish to understand the geological history and the forces that have formed the island.
