Geological Story of Carrickfergus & South-east Antrim
Event Description

250 Million Years in the Making

Carrickfergus Museum is delighted to host a talk by Ian Enlander from the Belfast Geologists’ Society to celebrate this year’s NI Science Festival. The geology of Carrickfergus is representative of much of Co Antrim and beyond. This event subsequently takes us through changing environments including deserts, oceans and land covered in both lava flows and ice. The resultant rocks have been an important raw material for many local industries which played their part in the economic and human story of the area.
