Islands, Coast and Quarries: The Geological Heritage of Fingal

Islands, Coast and Quarries: The Geological Heritage of Fingal by Matthew Parkes was first published in 2012 by Fingal County Council as an Action of the Fingal Heritage Plan 2011 — 2017. The book explores Fingal’s rich geological heritage focussing on 21 special geological heritage sites in the County. Illustrated with stunning contemporary photography, it presents some of the fascinating stories told by the rocks and fossils in these special places. In concise and non-technical language, it provides the reader with an insight into the forces that have created the landscape of Fingal. The 2012 print run quickly disappeared due to popular demand, but copies are now available and can be obtained free-of-charge from Fingal County Council:
