Abstract

Detrital U-Pb zircon dating of lower Ordovician syn-arc-continent collision conglomerates in the Irish Caledonides. Tectonophysics, 479, 165-174] present U-Pb detrital zircon age data for one sample from each of three formations of the Ordovician South Mayo Trough sedimentary sequence and interpret these in the context of a 'Taiwan model' of arc-continent collision on the Laurentian margin of Iapetus. Their interpretation relies on an overly simplistic treatment of their data and does not take cognisance of other data relevant to the relative time of deposition of the sampled horizons within the orogenic history and the evolving availability of sediment source rocks.
