B.A., Ph.D. (Cantab.), M.R.I.A., F.T.C.D. (1970)

1st November 2012

It was with deep sadness that the President, Council and membership of the Irish Association learned of the death of Dr. Trevor West on 30th October 2012.

Dr. West was President of the Association from 1980-1982, during which years he also served in Seanad Éireann.

During the many years of outstanding service which Dr West gave to Trinity College Dublin, it brought him into contact with many students and staff from Northern Ireland which gave him a wide understanding of the unfolding political events. His commitment was always "to make reason and good will take the place of passion and prejudice in Ireland, North and South."

We express our deep sympathy to his family at this time of sad loss.
