Abstract/Summary

Not only are there strong cultural connections between Northern Ireland and North America, but much of the geology of Northern Ireland is related to its shared history with the eastern seaboard of Canada and the USA. Even the opening of the Atlantic Ocean and the parting of North America from Europe left the Giant’s Causeway as a legacy. Events like this over geological time have given Northern Ireland a greater geological diversity than any similar-sized area on Earth and have provided opportunities to explore for minerals, to understand how we can manage groundwater sustainably and to enthuse generations about the mysteries of our landscape.
