UCD STUDENTS’ UNION SENDS DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF CORMAC Ó BRAONÁIN
Joanna Siewierska, President, UCD Students’ Union said;
‘We are all in shock and saddened by the sudden death of our student and friend Cormac, on Sunday morning.
Cormac was a kind, dedicated and generous friend to many students across campus. His sunny nature and passion for social justice were inspiring and contagious. You couldn't help but smile in his presence.
During his time in UCD and with Labour Youth he had an incredible impact on the University community and he will be sorely missed.
I want to extend our deepest condolences to Cormac’s family and to all of his friends across campus and beyond.
We have opened a book of condolences for all of the UCD community. It is in the old Student Centre across from the Students’ Union Offices from 9:30am-4:30pm this week. Students, staff and all members of the UCD community are welcome to come down to sign it in memory of Cormac.’
Úna Carroll, Welfare Officer UCD Students’ Union said;
‘There are students all over campus who are grieving at this time. We want you to know that there are welfare and academic supports available to all students who may need them. The best person to contact to access these supports is your Student Adviser. They can guide you through the extenuating circumstances process and put you in touch with the counselling or chaplaincy services.
If you have any questions or need any further help, drop in to the Students’ Union or give us a call and we can help you find the support you need.’
