Hook Head Lower Carboniferous dolomitized carbonate grainstones
This stop is located on the west side of Hook Head around half a mile from the lighthouse. The dolomite
s are largely grainstones. The rocks are highly crossed bedded with some bioturbation exhibiting a Scolithos ichnofacies
, suggesting a nearshore beach or barrier facies. Bedding plane
s are often draped by finer sediment.
