George Boole 200 welcomes Finetuned Limited to deliver a series of walks titled "Between the Sheets".

In the winter of 1864, George Boole fell ill after walking in the rain from his home in Ballintemple to Queen's College, Cork. He died a fortnight later. This walk marks the final day of George Boole. Proceeding in silence from UCC to his resting place, walkers are invited to consider certain themes by means of memorial cards at intervals during the journey. The final walk, departing at 4pm, will finish at St Michael's Church of Ireland, Blackrock in time for the special Choral Evensong George Boole Memorial Service at 6pm where places have been reserved for the participants.

"To walk the same way is to reiterate something deep; to move through the same space the same way is a means of becoming the same person, thinking the same thoughts." -  Rebecca Solnit.

Between the Sheets is researched, developed and produced by Finetuned Limited; a creative, curatorial and technical company focused on interdisciplinary research, practice and curated projects. The walks are led by Finetuned Director, Julian Weaver.

The walk is approximately 3.4 miles (5.5km) and it will most likely be very cold and quite possibly raining. It thus may not be suitable for children. Please dress warmly, bring an umbrella and a hot drink to keep you warm during the walk.
