Silurian Period rocks belonging to the Dunquin Group on the Irish Coast.

This is the second in a series of photographs of rocks at Clogher Bay on the Dingle Peninsula in the West Coast of Ireland, and they belong to the Dunquin Group from the Silurian Period. Clogher Bay is just south along the coast from Ferriters Cove which has featured in earlier postings.

  1. Thank you, Linda. These rocks are part of the Drom Point Formation which is made up of sedimentary rocks (such as siltstones, sandstones, and some volcanics) rather than metamorphic rocks like shale.
