One of Oliver Cromwell's generals famously remarked ''There isn't tree to hang a man, water to drown a man nor soil to bury a man'' about the protected karstic scenery in North Clare known as The Burren. A geologic terraine of exposed limestone with sparse but exotic vegetation, caves, and mineralization.

Numerous small veins of calcite/fluorite carrying minor amounts of galena, sphalerite and chalcopyrite are common throughout the region.
