Each year, the ICE Northern Ireland chairman nominates a charity for the Annual Dinner. This year, Chairman Philip Brown has nominated Brain Tumour Research in memory of Kevin Carey.

Kevin Carey was a passionate, accomplished and talented civil engineer from Portglenone, County Antrim. He studied civil engineering at Queens University Belfast (1999-2003), and went onto achieve a successful career in construction in Northern Ireland and England.

Kevin took emerging student engineers under his wing, often going above and beyond the call of duty, not only to nurture, educate and guide them, but to bring out the best in them. He chose to continue to mentor young graduates, even after they had completed their structured education and gone on to work further afield.

Kevin's professional contribution to the infrastructure and amenities of Northern Ireland is considerable, given his short career, especially with his additive positive influence on emerging engineers. Kevin's career and life were tragically cut short by terminal brain cancer in May 2017, but he is remembered for the profound impact his positive, uplifting and brave portrayal of life with a terminal illness had on so many people.
