We are saddened to hear about Ciara McMahon’s passing away unexpectedly.┬áCiara had just started a new career as a Director on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Board in Ireland. She collaborated in many projects of the SSH community, like CONFIDENCE, PREPARE, CONCERT. She was member of the Reference Group for the study on the effectiveness of the existing systems, procedures and practices in Member States in implementing the requirements on public information in the event of an emergency following the Basic Safety Standards requirements. She was often a jury member for different PhD thesis, including the one of our new Bureau member, Dr. Yevgeniya Tomkiv.

She will be missed by the whole radiation research community in Europe and internationally. We offer our deepest sympathy to everyone who are grieving her passing. May Ciara rest in peace.
