Landslides in Ireland - A report of the Irish Landslides Working Groups

landslides in ireland

​Landslides are a major cause of damage to property and loss of life every year across the globe.  They can be triggered by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, heavy rainfall, or indeed by man-made activities. Ireland is not a high risk area for major landslide events and in fact is a relatively benign environment in this regard compared to other countries.  This is a report of the working group set up in 2004.
