Abstract

At each of the spring complexes examined: Kilmallock, St. Bridget's Well, Newcastle West, Tobernamackan, Hurler's Cross, Co. Clare, Mullinahone, Co. Tipperary, and newly discovered springs at Meelin, Co. Cork and Gneeve Guilla, Co. Kerry, a survey was carried out of spring temperatures within 10 km of the thermal spring. Further regional studies resulted in information on springs at Cahir and Mullinahone in Co. Tipperary (see Section 7). At each of the main spring complexes the physical parameters (temperature, discharge, conductivity and pH) have been monitored weekly and chemical parameters monitored monthly. A groundwater "control" spring was also selected for each complex. All three of the main thermal springs issue from Carboniferous Limestone of Dinantian Age.
