UCC will host a conference on Richard Boyle 21st & 22nd June

The World of Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork (1566-1643)

Is an exciting conference about Richard Boyle the "Great Earl of Corke" and the father of Robert Boyle. Richard had an extraordinary and controversial life arriving in Ireland with £27 and rising (through God's Providence) to become probably the richest man in Ireland and Britain.

In this two-day conference scholars from disciplines of history, archaeology and art history evaluate the world of this remarkable man.
