Irish Fossils is a simple introduction to the fascinating subjects of palaeontology and geology and describes some of the most commonly found fossils in Ireland.

Our last copies

A beautiful guidebook to what can be found on Ireland's shores.

The diversity of our environment explains the great range of rock types and the remarkable representation of geological periods found in Ireland.

Fossils are found in sedimentary rocks, never in ignaeus rocks. Most fossils are formed in sediment accumulating under water, usually salt water.

Packed full of information, this book will be a welcome reminder to those who were at school a long time ago and a simple introduction to the next generation of naturalists.

The photographs of the fossils will make walks along the coast much more interesting.
