Author - Dan Tietzch-Tyler ISBN: 1-899702-04-0 The Yeats Country landscape is the product of several hundred million years of continuous and continuing earth-forming (geological) processes. Mighty mountain ranges were generated long ago by colliding continents. The mountains were destroyed by subsequent erosion to leave a flat plain waiting to be invaded by the sea. Between 100 and 200 million years ago the opening of the Atlantic Ocean fractured and tilted the land to form Benbulben's plateau and, much more recently, great glaciers scoured the wide, steep-sided valleys.
