The powerful force of geomorphological and geological processes is visible in the county's landscapes and landforms.

For the first time, Mayo's prime geological locations are assembled and presented here in one publication. From Cross Point to Cong, from Killary Harbour to Kilkelly, 'Reading the Rocks' brings the reader on a journey of exploration and discovery through the landscapes that surround us and how they came to be.
