U.S. Ambassador: Deepest Sympathies to Families on Tragic Deaths of Students in California

I would like to offer my heartfelt sympathy and condolence to the families, loved ones, and friends of the Irish students who lost their lives this morning in Berkeley California.

All of us at the United States Embassy are greatly saddened by news of this tragic incident and are ready to do whatever we can to assist the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs at this difficult time.  We will continue to coordinate as more details become available.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, loved ones, and friends at this difficult time.
