The Union of Students in Ireland is today saddened by the news of the passing of our friend and colleague, LIT Students’ Union Vice-President Steven Kavanagh. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this extremely difficult and challenging time.
Steven was one of the most genuine and honest people to have been involved in USI for many years. His dedication and commitment to the student cause both on a national level and working on behalf of the students in LIT was unparalleled. He is a true inspiration to all of us in the student movement.
This is obviously an extremely difficult time for those of us who knew Steven, and the many students who assisted in his role in LIT Students’ Union. For anyone who requires support or just someone to talk to, we here at USI are of course available and are happy to talk or just listen.
Removal and funeral arrangements will be made available as soon as we become aware of them.
Talking is a sign of strength. There’s always someone willing to listen- Reach out to others and be there for one another.
