Due to Hayfield Manor’s close proximity to University College Cork, The Boole Suite is aptly named after George Boole, who was an English mathematician, philosopher and logician whose work touched the fields of differential equations, probability and algebraic logic. He was the first professor of mathematics at University College Cork (formerly Queens College) and was a self-taught mathematical genius who is widely regarded as one of the most significant pioneers of the information age.
George Boole was also an avid reader and had a love of books and libraries. The Boole Library in University College Cork which was inaugurated in 1850 is now home to 800,000 books and was named the Boole Library following a decision of the Governing Body of UCC in 1982. It houses the George Boole Collection which features over 400 items including copies of letters relating to Boole by his sister and his academic work. The archive gives a fascinating insight into his personal life from his arrival in Cork in 1849 to his death in 1864.
