Supporting ‘X for X’

Matthew Lynch | Friday, October 28, 2011

Notre Dame Family,

When the men of O’Neill Hall heard of the tragic news of Xavier Murphy’s death, it hit especially close to home. Xavier’s brother, Julian, a current senior at Notre Dame, spent his freshmen and sophomore years in O’Neill. One of our O’Neill brothers lost someone really close to them. From the minute we heard of the terrible news, O’Neill wanted to help out our brother in need. Julian and the entire Murphy family are and will always be part of the O’Neill family. During the first quarter on Saturday, we will stand and join with our Zahm brothers and the entire Notre Dame family, past and present, and raise our “X” for Xavier and the entire Murphy family, showing the strong love and support of the entire Notre Dame community.

The Men of O’Neill Hall.
