The island of Gola, offshore north-west County Donegal, Ireland, shows a range of geomorphic and sedimentary features of Pleistocene and Holocene age, but hitherto these features have not been described. This study reports on the main glacigenic (Pleistoceneage) and coastal (Holocene) geomorphic features, their associated sediments and their environmental interpretations in the context of regional Pleistocene and Holocene climate change. The contemporary geomorphology of Gola is strongly controlled by its underlying geology and Pleistocene glacial history (which includes its paraglacial inheritance), and its exposed Atlantic-facing location.
