Mullaghmore Sandstone

The Mullaghmore Sandstone is exposed in three principal areas:
1. The base of the Mullaghmore Sandstone is exposed at Creevagh Head, and it crops out frequently in small quarries on the hill to the west of Rathlackan.
2. The upper part is exposed on the west side of Kilcummin Head.
3. The east side of Ross, forming the rocks into which the Killala Gabbro was intruded.
