Provenance information The Landslides in Ireland publication featured two case studies of landslide susceptibility mapping for the Mayo and Breifne areas. In 2013 the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) completed a landslide susceptibility mapping project as part of the National Geoscience Programme 2007 - 2013. This project was one of the main recommendations made in the 2006 publication “Landslides in Ireland”. Engineering consultants Mouchel Ireland Ltd. were commissioned to carry out the susceptibility mapping on behalf of GSI. Further detailed information on this project can be found here The susceptibility model produced as a result of this project is currently being assessed for counties Mayo and Kerry. Trinity College Dublin (Earth & Planetary Surface Processes) have been contracted to carry out further inventory development for these counties which will be integrated into the model. It is envisaged that this will indicate the stability of the susceptibility model on which to develop National susceptibility coverage by 2014.
