News BerkeleyStaff and students from the School of History and Archives came together on Thursday 24th September to hold a football match in memory of Niccolai Schuster, one of three UCD students who died in the Berkley balcony collapse in June.

Professor Tadgh Ó hAnnraichan, head of the School of History and Archives, addressed third year history students at the start of the semester about organising something to commemorate the memory of Schuster. This culminated in a staff and students match, which featured several lecturers from the School.

The match comes shortly after a memorial bench, dedicated to Schuster and the other two UCD victims of the tragedy, Eimear Walsh and Lorcán Miller, was unveiled in the Belfield Rose Garden.
