The geological history of Ireland gives some strong and perhaps surprising pointers to the geological future of Crete and explains the earthquakes and volcanic eruptions of the eastern Mediterranean area. The popularity of the series Game of Thrones means that as well as the Giant’s Causeway, visitors to Ireland now want to see for themselves the King’s Road and the Iron Islands.

Geologist Paul Lyle, an acknowledged expert in the unique geology of Northern Ireland and with more than a passing interest in that of Crete, is visiting the island and takes this opportunity to give a talk.


I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And nine years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
