A survivor of the 2015 Berkeley balcony collapse in the US has died.

27-year-old Aoife Beary passed away at Beaumont Hospital last night after suffering a stroke earlier in the week.

The Dublin woman was left with life-altering injuries following the collapse of the fourth floor balcony in California.

Six of her friends died while seven others were injured.

In recent years Aoife had been studying in England, and contributed to the introduction of a new Californian law regarding balcony safety.

Former Foreign Affairs Minister and Laois Offaly TD Charlie Flanagan says it's dreadfully sad news.
