Published by the GA in conjunction with the British Geomorphological Research Group.

Prepared by a subject expert, each guide has full colour photographs, high quality original cartography and illustration and, with the support of the Ordnance Survey, OS map extracts.

The Burren plateau of north-west County Clare is internationally recognised for being the finest example of Karstic terrain in Ireland, as well as for its remarkable flora and its rich archaeological heritage. This guide, the GA’s first on an area in Ireland, includes sections on the geology of the area, enclosed depressions, the limestone pavement at Sheshymore, coastal karst and forms, caves and the Gort-Kinvarra Lowlands lying to the east of the Burren. It includes suggestions for visits to specific features as well as routes to follow.

Drew's book has the feel of an A-level/Undergraduate text. No doubt this will be the one that the majority of students on field trips will buy - Reviewed by the Field Studies Council, October 2002
