Remnant periglacial features on the summit of Truskmore, Counties Sligo and Leitrim, Ireland in Periglacial processes and landforms.

Description :
The features include sorted nets, a possible cryoplanation terrace and stone-banked terraces. The remnant periglacial forms owe their existence to a resistant cap of sandstone on the plateau surface which has weathered to form a frost susceptible diamicton. The age of the features is not known but they probably formed during the later part of the last Midlandian Glaciation when the plateau was ice-free.
