Irish students lost in tragic accident

Posted: 17 June, 2015

It is with great sadness that DIT confirms that one of our students, Eoghan Culligan, has lost his life in the tragic accident that took place in Berkeley, California yesterday.

President of DIT, Professor Brian Norton said “On behalf of every student and staff member in DIT, we extend our deepest sympathy to the Culligan family and to all of Eoghan’s friends, classmates and my colleagues in DIT.   Eoghan completed Year 3 of Logistics and Supply Chain Management and was also a keen GAA sportsman, with so much to look forward to.  The sadness felt at this tragedy reaches far beyond those who knew the students personally. We know that this is a very difficult time for many students, both at home and those who are travelling for the summer holidays.  Our support services are available to any student who wishes to come to college, to meet with our counsellors, chaplains, and the Students’ Union, or who may wish to express solidarity with those who are injured or who have lost their lives in this terrible accident.”

Mr. Brian Gormley, Manager of Campus Life has extended a welcome to any students who wish to come to the Aungier Street campus and has confirmed that the Chaplaincy, Student Counselling Service and the Student Health Service will be open today to meet them.
