Posted 02 January 2022

Aoife Beary was one of the UCD students who was severely injured when a balcony on which they were standing collapsed in Berkeley. California on 16 June 2015. Aoife passed away on Saturday 1 January 2022.

The University extends deepest sympathies to Aoife's family and friends.

Then Dean of Science, Professor Joe Carthy said "Aoife dealt with the devastating impact of her accident with great bravery and fortitude. She was awarded a BSc in Pharmacology in 2016. She will be greatly missed by her family and wide circle of friends.

I know Aoife's passing will rekindle memories of the six students who died in the Berkeley accident in June 2015 and our thoughts are with their families too."

UCD dedicated the Rose Garden at Belfield House as a memorial to students who have died.
