New book on Fingal's rich geological heritage launched

A BEAUTIFULLY illustrated new book on the geological heritage of Fingal has been published by Fingal County Council and the Heritage Council.

The book is entitled 'Islands, Coasts and Quarries – Fingal's Geological Heritage' and it was launched last week at a ceremony in the White Sands Hotel in Pormarnock. This richly illustrated book presents some of the fascinating stories of Fingal's rocks and fossils and describes 21 sites of geological and landscape importance in the county. Immediately after the launch, those in attendance were treated to a short walk to see the geology of the nearby coast with the author of the book, Matthew Parkes. The book is published by Fingal County Council with the support of The Heritage Council and will be available on request after the launch – contact for a copy.
