    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

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  12. 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
  13. Hi all - complete newbie here. Just wondering could anyone provide identification of this fossil creature. Source: a stone in a loose open dry wall typical of farms in the west of Ireland Location: Athenry area, County Galway, Ireland Notable feature: there is a one cm deep depression above the segmented component Many thanks in advance. https://postimg.cc/y3R0H6RW EDIT: Image posted here so it will remain long after the off-site link goes dead. -Ken

    ID a fossil

    Hi, Found this in Galway in the West of Ireland. It appears to be a limestone that was part of an eroded bank. I really know very little about fossils and a totally uneducated guess is an algae fossil. Thanks for any help. Dave

    ID of goniatites / ammonoids

    The Namurian cyclothems in West Clare, Ireland originate in an environment of delta systems which deposited sediments in an offshore basin (Clare Basin) and are referred to as the Central Clare Group. There are five cyclothems comprising marine bands (conventionally considered to form the ‘base’ of each cyclothem) and upwards coarsening fine-grained and sandstone sediments. The five cyclothems are named (from oldest to youngest): Tullig, Kilkee, Doonlicky, Cyclothem IV, and Cyclothem V. The marine bands contain - among other fossils - index fossils in the form of ammonoids (goniati

    Carboniferous Irish Fossils?

    I found this fossil in a County Mayo in Ireland. I looked over a geology map of the locality and best I could deduce is that this maybe from the Carboniferous. Any thoughts?

    Hunting at Malahide Beach

    Hi everyone! During the X-Mas/New Year holidays my family and I went to Dublin (Ireland) to celebrate the New Year there (we don't enjoy NYE in The Hague much lol). Obviously, seeing opportunity to go hunt at a new location, I did some googling around and found an accessible location not far away from Dublin: Malahide Beach. LINK It's a Carboniferous location, an age that I'd never hunted before and had very few fossils of, so I was looking forward to it. We got there in the early afternoon and started looking for stuff immediately. The spot where we arrived didn't
