volcanoes in Ireland

Comments



  • Southernmost one I know is Arklow Rock.

    Kerry's mostly sandstone, so less likely to have volcanoes




  • I believe there are some volcanic features near limerick but getting info on them is not easy.




  • Not really in Kerry, but definitely in Limerick. East of Balllyneety. Check out the attachment, all the stuff in green is volcanic. There are a few hills out there.

    Thank you, good image.




  • Croghan Hill in County Offaly is an extinct volcano. Even has a Wikipedia article:

  • Plenty of extinct volcanic plugs on display around Belfast, maybe a bit far north for ya.

    I guess I'm closer to it than you :rolleyes:




  • If you draw a line from the Shannon Estuary to around Dundalk, north of this line was on one tectonic plate while south of the line was on a different plate. Millions of years ago the two plates converged and the line where the two plates came together is called the Iapatus Suture.


    The northern plate subducted under the southern plate causing a number of volcanic areas along the Suture. Lambay Island is the remains of an extinct volcano and the coast at Portrane and Balbriggan show examples of volcanic formation.


    There are probably other examples along the Iapatus Suture line.
