        The west of Ireland has much light to shed on all of these questions. I will be writing a series of posts on the geology of the west of Ireland. I shall focus mostly on South Mayo and Connemara, but will take occasional trips elsewhere. This follows the pattern of the time I . The geology of the area covered by this map is quite complex. Most of the rocks in the Connemara area are composed of meta-sedimentary rocks. These rocks were originally deposited in a marine environment during a phase of continental tension and crustal thinning beginning around million years ago.

        Tim Robinson, who established himself as Ireland's most brilliant living non-fiction writer with the two-volume "Stones of Aran", moved from Aran to Connemara nearly twenty years ago. This book is the result of his extraordinary engagement with the mountains, bogs and shorelines of the region, and with its folklore and its often terrible /5(19). the country, with ancient metamorphic schists, gneisses and other rocks. On the Belmullet Peninsula the Annagh Gneiss is around million years old. Other metamorphic rocks are younger, with most of north Mayo composed of Dalradian metamorphic rocks, similar to those found in Connemara, Donegal and in the Highlands of Size: KB.

The natural backdrop of mountains, valleys, lakes and rivers in Connemara is the result of natural events that occurred over the last million years since Connemara's rocks first began to form.

Much of this history centres on the closure of a great ocean: the Iapetus.

The whole of Connemara is a very big structure with massive folds. It is part of the Dalradian sequence that also occurs in North Mayo, Donegal and through into western Scotland.

There are even older Precambrian rocks in a very few places exposed by massive faults. Many large areas, such as Connemara, are defined as terranes.

The Dalradian rocks in the north of Ireland were surveyed as part of this programme and during the period tothe Geological Survey of Ireland published complete map coverage for the Dalradian in Northern Ireland (contained on 12 one inch to the mile scale sheets). Thus, the implied age of the Grampian orogeny in Connemara is substantially younger than generally acknowledged, but consistent with other age constraints from Ireland and Scotland.

A revised age for the Grampian orogeny helps to solve a long-standing controversy about the age of contractional deformation and arc magmatism in Dalradian Cited by:   Gold-bearing mineral deposits occur over a strike distance of > km within the Grampian Terrane of Scotland and Ireland.
