Investigation of Ireland's Quaternary heritage has a long history that extends back prior to the setting up of the Geological Survey of Ireland in 1845. Ireland's rich Quaternary deposits and land forms have ensured that it continues to be a key location for international research. The publication of The Quaternary History of Ireland in 1985 (Edwards and Warren 1985) has served the Quaternary community extremely well for three decades but it is now timely to review the substantial body of recent research into the Irish Quaternary. This chapter serves to provide a historical context to the syntheses of recent research that are reported in the subsequent chapters of this book.
