DescriptionThe geology of Ireland is special. Scientists have never found dinosaur fossils here. But recently there have been new discoveries! A few years ago, school teacher and fossil collector Roger Byrne discovered two fossils on the east coast of County Antrim. At first, researchers thought that these two fossils came from the same dinosaur, but then they discovered that they were from the early Jurassic about 200 million years ago and belonged to two different species.
