University College Cork (UCC) has planned a year-long national and international events under the banner ‘George Boole 200’ to mark and celebrate the bicentenary of its first professor of mathematics George Boole (1815-1864).

George Boole is regarded as father of pure mathematics.

A diverse range of projects and events will showcase the contribution made by George Boole in the field of mathematics, computer science and engineering, as part of the celebration of his life and legacy. The events are aimed to inspire and fund the next generation of talent across disciplines.

The year-long celebration will culminate in ‘George Boole Day’ to be commemorated on 2nd November every year as Boole was born on this date.

Dr Michael Murphy, President of University College Cork, said, “Ireland is lauded around the world for our famous scholars and among them George Boole, originally from Lincoln, is highly distinguished. Some 200 years after his birth, George Boole remains a beacon of academic excellence and the influence of his theories of logic and probabilities are as powerful today as they were back in the 1800s…… Through our planned extensive programme of celebratory George Boole 200 events, we will celebrate the long established tradition of world-class research in academic disciplines associated with him. Of course, his most enduring legacy will be that whenever you turn on a computer or use the internet, you think of George Boole.”

UCC have launched an interactive website – – to provide highlights of the George Boole 200 bicentennial event.
