    Royal Irish Academy, May 13. WILLIAM J. McCAL-LIEN: The metaphorphic rocks of Inishowen, Co. Donegal. The nature and distribution of the following subdivisions of the Dalradian rocks of Ireland were described; Malin Head quartzite (oldest), Glengad schists, Linsfort black schists, Stragill calcareous schists, Crana quartzite, Culdaff limestone, Inch Island limestone group, Fahan slates and grits, Inishowen green schists, grits and phyllites. The suggested correlations with the Scottish Dalradians indicate that the first four of these divisions belong to the Islay sequence and that the overlying groups belong to the Lough Awe succession.
