The genesis and environment of deposition of an unusual Silurian limestone from the Dingle Peninsula are suggested. A shallow-water environment, populated almost exclusively by benthic organisms, was periodically influenced by volcanic products. Synsedimentary tectonics, volcanism, and current activity were the main factors controlling sedimentation.
