      Kinsale Ideas - Deep thoughts in a safe harbour!

      Kinsale Ideas - Last Friday of the month - Harbour Bar 8.15pm-9.30pm Join us in the Harbour Bar in Kinsale on the last Friday of every month for a converstion with a leading Irish based academic. The goal is to explore the world and universe we live in and to try to gain insight into what it is to be human. Here’s a flavour of what you can expect to hear: On October 25th with Professor Paul Callanan from The Department of Astrophysics in UCC. We’ll talk black holes, the big bang, exoplanets and Ireland’s role in proving Einstein was right. November - Professor Mark Keane, chair of computer science in UCD talking artificial intelligence. January - Professor Don Ross on elephant cognition, decision making and consciousness and, February - Professor Luke O’Neill, immunologist, science writer and radio presenter talking to us about the future of biology, amongst other things. Date to be confirmed: Dr Maria McNamara, palaeontologist on extinction events and a sweeping tour through Earth's earliest history.   This isn’t a lecture, it’s informal and conversational, taking place in an old style bar to allow deep thoughts to be contemplated at your ease. We have space for 30 people. To cover costs (be assured this is not-for-profit), tickets can be purchased for €15 or €50 for the first four events. Join us on Facebook or twitter to receive updates.  We guarantee we will never talk about politics, Trump, Boris or Brexit. There is much more to life, and we hope you can come and explore the known unknowns (with an occasional unknown unknown) with us on the last Friday of every month in the Harbour Bar.  See you there!
