The Boyle Memorial – Boyle’s Law


In the South Transept of St Mary`s Collegiate Church, Youghal is the Boyle Chapel.

Here there is a Tudor memorial to Sir Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of
Cork with his family, including  his then infant son, Robert Boyle, who in
later life defined what we know as Boyle`s Law and was an originator of the
modern study of chemistry.
