At this deeply upsetting time, we are thinking of our friend and colleague, Séamus (Shay) Lawless.  On behalf of everyone at ADAPT and Trinity College Dublin, we are offering our support to his wife, Pam, and their daughter, Emma, and to all his family and friends.  Shay is an Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator at ADAPT and one of our research leaders, an inspirational colleague, and a much loved and valued member of our family.  His decision to climb Mount Everest to support the Barretstown Children’s Charity exemplifies all the things we love about Shay: his boundless enthusiasm, his courage, and his determination to help and inspire others.  We are extremely distressed at what has happened on Mount Everest and we hope that he is found safely as soon as possible.
