Summary:In SW Ireland the dominant Hercynian structural features are large-scale synclinoria and anticlinoria which give a clearly expressed grain to the topography; the major folds have amplitudes and wavelengths of several km and can be traced for tens of km along strike. Further north the folding becomes gradually more gentle, preventing a precise delimitation of the N boundary of the fold belt. Metamorphic grade is low and there is a lack of granite emplacement.
