Cork County Library Lectures

George Boole Public Lecture Series

Join us at Bandon Library on November 13 for the final talk in the series, which takes place at 7:30pm. 

The Cork County Library's Public Lecture Series is to feature Olivia Frawley, Family History Project Manager for the George Boole 200 programme, over the next six weeks.

Visiting four regional libraries in Cobh, Mallow, Skibbereen and Bandon, Olivia will deliver seminars on George Boole’s remarkable life, as well as providing fascinating insights into his family’s accomplishments. 

Free and open to the public, the talks will be enjoyed by anyone who want to hear a good story about a complex man and his remarkable family.

Olivia is the Editor of the George Boole* Chronicles, a finalist in the US-based International Book Awards in May and published as part of UCC’s George Boole 200 celebrations this year. She also edited the George Boole animated visual display, which currently forms part of UCC Library Exhibition ‘The Life and Legacy of George Boole’. Olivia currently works in the International Office where she provides support to the International Strategy of the University.  

George Boole (1815-1864) changed the world we live in today. He was one of the forefathers of the Information Age and the first Professor of Mathematics at Queen’s College Cork (now known as University College Cork). Despite the ubiquity of application of his mathematics and global familiarity with the term Boolean Logic, George Boole remains virtually unknown outside the world of Computer Science and Mathematics.
