Abstract

Analyses of both till and glacioaqueous sedimentary fabrics and their lithological characteristics have been carried out on sediments sampled at 8 sites located around the northern margin and piedmont of Slieve Bloom, as indicators of both the direction of ice flow towards and across Slieve Bloom and the transport distances of tills deposited in and around the mountains. These 2 sets of information give indications of both the provenance of glacigenic sediments and their route into Slieve Bloom and offer insights to the variability of ice sheet dynamics in this region of Ireland
