This is shown below: The Angular Unconformity The strata A to E was deposited first, tilted, subjected to erosion (peneplained) and submerged.Strata X to Z were laid down horizontally on top of the older beds.She has claimed there was an alleged failure to have any adequate warning signs that the undercut shore banks were dangerous and an alleged failure to warn those present that walking close to the edges of the banks should be prohibited.She has further claimed the ESB allowed her to use the lake shore as a recreational walk when the allegedly undermined banks were a trap because they looked solid.

The geologic timescale is a chronology (calendar) of events on Earth based on obtaining ages of past events.

(relative geologic timescale) (b) Absolute Dating Following the discovery of radioactivity in 1895, radiometric dating techniques were developed to determine the absolute ages, i.e. In the succession of strata, each layer represents the geographical conditions that occurred over that area at the time the layer was deposited.

In each period of earth's history different fauna and flora evolved with similar faunas being characteristic of similar beds.

The 38-year old woman, her senior counsel Richard Mc Donnell told the High Court, was rescued from the rocks at Blessington reservoir and taken to hospital where it was found vertebrae on her lower back were fractured.

Counsel said Ms Mc Curtain had to wear a back brace for about eight months afterwards and it is her case she won't ever be pain free.
