Our dear friend and college colleague Brian O’Callaghan-Westropp lost his life in an unspeakable tradegy in the wild fires in Greece. Brian was on honeymoon with his wife Zoe, when what should have been the happiest time of his life turned into a nightmare. Brian’s wife Zoe is still recovering in hospital in Greece.
Brian was an amazing man who helped all around him. He volunteered for blood bikes Ireland in between studying the final year of an MBA in National College of Ireland. We as his colleagues in NCI are distraught at this time and like all his friends, colleagues and family are trying to come to terms with this incredible loss.
Brian was a natural leader who represented our class during our MBA journey. His enthusiasm, passion and zest for life were infectious. It is incredible to think that Brian was completing his 2nd consecutive Masters course whilst volunteering, fundraising and planning his wedding to his beloved Zoe. His focus and drive were inspirational to all whom he encountered.
Brian’s life was lost too soon and too young, and he leaves a hole in our hearts. We will never forget his larger than life personality, his laughter and spirit that carried us all at times.
If you would like to provide assistance to his family, please consider a donation now. The entire proceeds of this fundraiser will go directly to Brian's wife Zoe to try to help her through this most difficult time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
