This volume extends to Northern Ireland the series of handbooks on the Regional Geology of Great Britain which for 30 years have been of constant value to amateur and professional geologists as concise but informative reference books. Because of the extraordinary variety of geological formations in Ulster it has not been possible, within the format of the series, to describe every formation in the detail which might of been wished but it is hoped that the handbook will be of value, not only to geologists but to all who are interested in the natural history of Ulster.
