Sligo is an awesome place for fossils, went there with my girlfriends family a couple of years ago and found an abundance of carb limestone corals, brachiopods, crinoids etc

To understand where we are going, we need to know where we have been.

Hi Colin,
 

Everything from Pre-Cambrian to Carboniferous (plus glacial), but mostly Carboniferous limestone and shale.

I found it on a large flat area of beach. No large rocks about as it gets all the Atlantic storms but this particular beach was covered in these. They had a pale blue / grey hue. If I remember correctly beach was called Easky.

Hi Margaret,
That's in large area of Carb. limestone, should be all sorts of coral there!

Didn't know that, stumbled on it by accident, over there occasionally as some family still there. Thanks for info.
