Volcanoes in Ireland...
...I remember one of the biggest ongoing disappointments of my sheltered childhood was the absence of an volcano in Ireland. It was a constant source of annoyance that I did not live in some 'exciting' environment.

And then, when I took up hillwalking, the whole area around Mangerton, Crohane and Beenaunmore was particularly exciting, as you can clearly see the columns formed by lava cooling, the plug of the ancient volcano, the sidewalls of what must have been a vast caldera. A supervolcano in South Kerry! And last night Channel 4 started a series on how the British landscape was formed with a feature on volcanoes, and thought it might be interesting to see if there was any information available on Irish volcanoes. Anyone amateur geologists out there know of any reasonably accessibly information on this?
