GEOTHERMAL INVESTIGATIONS AND POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN IRELAND
This paper summarises the work on geothermal energy in Ireland carried out during the second EEC four year R & D programme (1979|83). The work was done under contract to DG 12 of the EEC Commission by three Irish contractors - the Geological Survey of Ireland, University College Cork and University College Galway. The Geological Survey subcontracted parts of their work to Dr. D.J. Burdon, Minerex Ltd and University College Galway. The projects were funded on a 50/50 basis between the Commission and the Irish participants. In compiling this paper the author had available to him the reports and papers listed in the references. The contents of this paper are based on these works and most of the figures used to illustrate it are taken with acknowledgement from them. The scope of the report is confined strictly to an outline of Irish geothermal completeness. Northern Ireland data are included on the heat flow, temperature gradient and temperature maps.
