THE BURREN By Conor, Lochlan, Marykate, and Luca The Burren is a karst landscape, this means it is an area of exposed limestone.
THE BURREN The Burren was formed by the sea level dropping and exposing the limestone underneath.
Ailwee caves The ailwee caves were formed by water mixing with carbon in the rocks to make carbonic acid which slowly dissolves the rocks. It was founded by a farmer in 1944 but he didn’t tell anyone until 1973.
