The World of Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork

Taking place in University College Cork on 21st and 22nd June this conference examines Richard Boyle, the First Earl of Cork (1566-1643).

The conference forms part of an Irish Research Council project to map his Irish estates, re-evaluating his contributions to 17th century Ireland.  For further details contact Dr. Colin Rynne at c.rynne@ucc.ie
