Abstract

The Kilmacrenan Succession east of Glenties is of Dalradian metasediments which can be correlated with the Islay Succession of Scotland. These rocks have undergone metamorphism leading to a greenschist facies assemblage and deformation resulting in a penetrative schistosity developing sub-parallel to the bedding. This schistosity has been subsequently deformed by a well-developed crenulation cleavage which is associated with a large recumbent syncline which faces south-east. Three minor phases of deformation follow this and recrystallisation seems to have continued throughout.
