Abstract

An Ordovician age for at least part of the Clew Bay Supercomplex, a dismembered ophiolite together with contiguous deep-water sediments and volcanics occurring adjacent to the Highland Boundary fault in western Ireland, supplement comparisons with the Highland Border Complex of Scotland based on lithological similarities. An early phase of terrane development associated with ophiolite emplacement is represented in western Ireland whilst the recognition of similar intra-terrane magnafacies patterns permit a more complete analysis of the evolution of the Highland Border terrane.
