Benbulben, Yeats Country, County Sligo
The distinct shape of Ben Bulben also known as “Table Mountain” is a true symbol of County Sligo, Ireland. It was formed by glaciers during the last Ice age when geomorphological processes began to shape the impressive plateau. Ice began creeping through the valleys and cracks in the rock, the underlying shales were eventually eroded by the movement of the ice above. The shale was eroded faster than the limestone above. This caused the slopes to become steeper and left large overhangs of limestone at the top of the valleys. As the ice began to recede, support for the slopes failed and the land began to slip into the valleys below Ben Bulben Mountain
