The Geology of Laois and Offaly
The last thirty years have seen much new research on the geology of Laois and Offaly,
shedding new light on – and providing fascinating new insights into – the landscape
heritage of the two counties. John Feehan has remained in close touch with this research
since his own work on Slieve Bloom as a post-graduate student in the Department of
Geology at Trinity College in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
In this magnificent volume John now brings all of this research together for a general
readership, and relates it to the broader cultural heritage of Laois and Offaly in a chapter
that looks at Geology in our Lives.
