Glenelly

Glenelly 1

The Glenelly Valley in the Sperrins, Northern Ireland. Note the 'kame' in the left foreground. The last ice age has had a great impact on the Sperrins and the ice sheets that covered the north of Ireland were probably at their thickest over the Sperrins. A kame is a fossil delta formed perhaps at the edge of an ice sheet where the rivers flowed from under the ice.
