Like many of you I have met and talked to so many people who either knew, or had connections with those who died so tragically in the accident at Berkeley, Califonia, yesterday (Tuesday 16th June). My own nephews knew at least two of the deceased personally. Many of us have known the excitement of travelling on a J1 Visa - exploring a new and exciting world, for the first time for many.
Below is a moving tribute posted on the Ballyboden St. Enda's Website, to one of those, Eoghan Culligan, who died so tragically. I know that my own thoughts and yours are with the families of Eoghan and the other bright young people whose lives were cut short so shockingly on Tuesday.
