There's a whole stream of volcanic plugs or hills running through co.wexford.
From arklow point to Tara hill to vinegar hill to carrickbyrne to slieve coillte.
It's along this north east to south west axis that has some of the best quality soil in the country.

Earth's shifting crust linked to climate change. Volcano eruptions related.

Thanks for that.
While doing some research, I've noticed that the following books on Volcanos are free on Amazon.com Kindle:

Earthquakes, Tsunamis and Nuclear Risks: Prediction and Assessment Beyond the Fukushima Accident

Observing the Volcano World: Volcano Crisis Communication (Advances in Volcanology)

They are published by Springer which has a solid reputation.

Scientists have figured out how to better predict where and when volcanoes will erupt — and their models accurately pinpointed disasters of the past.
