Results from research on the Tertiary deposits in the Lough Neagh region of Northern Ireland are presented. The fossil pollen and spores show that the Lough Neagh Clays are of Chattian (late Oligocene) age. The deposits were formed in shallow temporary lakes around river deltas. Comparisons are made with the Oligocene deposits in the western part of the British Isles.
