As a Group, we should be actively campaigning to highlight the fact that (1) geomorphology expertise exists in Ireland and (2) scientific research has been conducted in many locations and environments around the country.

The Irish Geomorphology Group is a nascent organization established in Spring 2013. Our first goal is to develop a sense of community among those of us who identify as ‘geomorphologists’ in Ireland. We are currently developing a register of Irish-based geomorphologists. We had our first meeting at the Conference of Irish Geographers, NUIG, May 17th 2013. We took this opportunity to form an inaugural committee tasked with leading and promoting the Irish Geomorphology Group during the first year.

The Committee membership for 2013-2014 is as follows:
President: Mary Bourke (TCD)
Secretary (publications, conferences): Susan Hegarty (St. Pat’s)
WebGuru: Eugene Farrell (NUIG)
ListServe, membership: Ro Charlton (NUIM)
Research funding: Kevin Lynch (NUIG)
Postgraduate Representative: Sarah Kandrot (UCC)
