On Fri January 20th the Fifth Year students of Physics, accompanied by Mr Flynn, travelled to Waterford IT for the annual Tyndall Schools’ lecture. The title of the lecture was “The Life and Legacy of Robert Boyle” and was brilliantly delivered by Sheila Donegan and Eoin Gill, both lecturers in WIT. They were both dressed in attire typical of the period in which Robert Boyle lived. Sheila played the part of Robert’s sister, Lady Ranelagh, who assisted him in conducting many of his experiments. This lecture, being delivered in Waterford, was particularly significant considering that Robert Boyle was born in Lismore castle and lived there for part of his life.
