The American Ireland Fund has donated US $100,000 to help those affected by the Berkeley balcony collapse.

The philanthropic organisation said the tragedy has had a profound effect on the Irish at home and around the world - and the task of meeting the needs of the families is urgent.

The fund will be directed at those working on the ground, including the Irish Pastoral Centre, which is providing assistance to the families.

Meanwhile, President Michael D Higgins has urged communities to send love to those grieving the lives of six students killed in a balcony collapse in the US.
