Abstract/Summary

The Tellus high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric maps define previously unmapped zones within the Newry Igneous Complex, County Down. High-precision uranium–lead zircon dating of nine rock samples from different parts of the complex provides a robust set of age constraints (c.414–407 Ma), which confirm that the different plutons of the complex young towards the south-west. Combined, these new data allow an innovative model of intrusion to be developed, with intrusion beginning in the north-east and progressing towards the south-west.
