Abstract

Talus slopes in the Curraghmore cirque basin in the Macgillycuddy's Reeks have developed since the end of the Glenavy Stadial (Last Glacial Maximum; MIS 2). The site lay outside Younger Dryas glacier limits and, as a result, thick rockfall and debris flow accumulations form a significant landform assemblage draping lower hillslopes. Rockwall retreat rates since icesheet deglaciation average 0.08mm per year, and 0.2mm per year up to the beginning of the Holocene
