A Wee Bit of Geology, History and Music from the Ancient Tribal Homeland

Stuff requiring attention of late so thin on posts. But here is a bit from the ancient tribal homeland for the day.

Cliffs of Moher - checking out 300 million year old shale and sandstone

Skellig Michael and Devonian alluvial sediments (350 million)

Blanket bog erosion likely from over grazing

The Burren - limestone dated at 350 million years 
Top soil lost possibly due to grazing and climate change

Poison Glenn in Donegal with classic glacial landscape

Major tectonic boundary near Westport  

The Bogside Neighborhood or the Catholic part of Derry (Londonderry for the Orange) 

Blood Sunday mural in Derry when the Troubles really spread

And a little music from some favorites:

Ireland? Wow! For the first couple of pictures, I kept wondering in what part of eastern Washington are the Cliffs of Moher. Silly me. Enjoy your trip.
