J. K. CHARLESWORTH: Some observations on the glacial geology of north-east Ireland. The chief theses of this paper are (1) the drumlins of northeast Ireland were fashioned by ice of the last main glaciation; (2) a Carlingford re-advance against the Mourne and Carlingford Mountains and along Carlingford Lough; (3) the southward retreat of the ice along the Main and Lower Bann and its stagnation along its front and in the Lough Neagh area; (4) an Antrim coastal re-advance that blocked the Bann and Lagan and ponded the drainage of the glens of Antrim in a suite of glacier-lakes.
