    Is it a fossil?

    Hello there, my son found this rock with imprints on Port beach in Ireland. Could it be a fossil?
  2. So, I thought I would start a similar thread to the "Fossil from Each of the 50 States" thread. But one for the UK. Show a fossil from each county in the UK - England,(48), Wales (22), Scotland (33) & Ireland. And for Ireland, we can include Northern (6) and Southern (26).

    Potential Merocanites Fossil

    Found this fossil in Co. Dublin, Ireland. According to my research it belongs to the genus merocanites, and if that is correct it seems to be rare-ish? Can anyone confirm? Thanks!

    Is this a snake head

    I have this in my possession over 25 years, I cannot remember where I got it, however I used to make hand crafts and used stones from the beach mainly Killiney Dublin Ireland. I went through a stage looking at stones with a magnifying glass telling people that the stones were fishes and lizards (I could see scales and claws and teeth on some of them) Everyone told me I was crazy so I stopped !!. This feels lighter than I would expect it to be if it was a stone and it absorbs and retains heat quicker that any other stone that I have, I collect stones from all around the world as I travelled. Th
  9. Anyone know of any spots I can go collecting? I’ve asked around a good bit but have found nothing of note. The only two places I know of is Hook head County Wexford which is definitely worth the trip and personally I have had some good finds there, the only other place I have found was a beach in County Cork beside spike island between Gobby beach and Lough Beg beach which as far as I’m aware is not known about by anyone really. So if you know of any decent places in Ireland let me know!

    stratigraphic problem.

    Hi. Around year ago I was exploring the area around Lough Hackett 20 km north from Galway. I found few fossils on the shore with much different fauna than typical late Visean fauna in Co. Galway. The main problem here is stratigraphy. It's similar to british Avon group of Mendips. I think all of them are Tournaisian. Fig1. Large piece of iron-stained black crinoidal limestone.

    ID fossil - help needed! Ireland

    Hi I came across this fossil while digging a footing trench. Was about 1200mm below the ground. At the bottom of the trench in the attached image. In grey clay. In one of the many cobbles in this layer. it’s about 65mm [ 2-1/2” ] wide. Darcystown in North County Dublin in Ireland, about a mile from the east coast at about 350ft above sea level.
  12. I purchased this from someone in the UK that said it was Hexagonaria from Ireland. Does anyone have any idea if this is true?

    Dinosaur skull?

    Hi guys, my dad found this and says it's a fossilized dinosaur head embedded in this rock, my family and friends are doubtful. He found this a few days ago and had me convinced enough to dig it up. I am unsure whether or not this is just a cool looking rock that happens to look like a dinosaur head, or if it is actually a fossilized head embedded in this rock. Found in Munster Ireland, you can make out what seems to be a eye socket, mouth, and just has the general shape of what you would expect a dinosaur head look like on one side. The other side is all rock and on the bot
  14. Hi. I have a number of beautiful goniatite that were found in east Co.Sligo, Ireland. This is near an area in Leitrim that is abundant in nuirian goniatites. Can anyone ID this spieces, I'd be very grateful Here is some more photos.

    Irish Waulsortian Limestone Fossil

    Complete newbie with a bunch of new fossils so brace yourselves. The fossil was found in east Clare (Ireland) Waulsotian limestone. This rock is dated Tournaisian - Lower Visean, and is a mix of solid limestone & a brittle lime mud. (Id'd using geological survey maps) "Waulsortian limestone is extensively developed in Ireland, and it represents a phase of submarine bank development during the Tournaisian (Mississippian, Carboniferous). These carbonate buildups are rich in (now lithified) lime mud, contain a shelly marine fossil fauna and generally lack any sign

    Is this a fossil?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the group. I'm wondering if the enclosed pictures are of a fossil. Found it on my land a while ago but have now only realised that it could be a fossil. Thank you,

    Irish River Fossil?

    I have no idea if this is even a fossil, but this looks unlike any rock I’ve ever seen and I’d really appreciate some clarification on what it could be? I’m pretty sure I found it in a river near Scariff, County Clare, Ireland.
  21. Paleontologists have found the fossilized remains of two Jurassic dinosaur species in Co. Antrim in Northern Ireland. These are the first dinosaur remains reported from anywhere in Ireland and some of the most westerly in Europe. In related news: Oldest whiskey bottle fragments found at nearby Old Bushmills Distillery.
  22. Very large Carboniferous caniniids can be spectacular - here is an 8cm section of Siphonophyllia ?cylindrica from Benbulben Mountain, Sligo that I just acquired for a small amount in an auction (nobody else wanted it, surprisingly!). Also a pair of pieces from a very similar species, from the Sligo coast - another bargain from a while back, probably Siphonophyllia samsoni which is slightly later. (Both are Asbian stage, lower Carboniferous). They can be up to a metre or so in length. I must go there one day! (Section photographed submerged - the hand held shot

    Can anyone ID this fossil please?

    Hi, I really don't know too much about fossils but I found this on my farm in Co. Laois, Ireland. It was in a wooded area and my farm is about 100 metres above sea level. Thinking it could be a lepidodendron from googling things, however I'm really not sure. Attached are pics of the fossil. Thank you in advance!
  24. I found this on an island beach on the south west coast of Donegal, Ireland Any help in identifying would be greatly appreciated I have no experience at all
