    Really sorry to hear. Interacted with him here and met him on many spins, events and God know where else. A cycling stalwart and will be sorely missed. RIP

    I looked in here earlier to see if this was posted, Eamonn was local to me and while we knew each other in real life it took a while to register our connection on boards.

    A gentleman who loved cycling ,loved a chat and loved debating while you were with him, he sadly had an accident on the Tony Golden (Garda) cycle two weeks ago.

    May he rest in peace.

    Ah, very sad to hear.

    Just know him from his posts on here, always a voice of reason.

    What lovely photos on his sons post above particularly the one with the bidon in his hand- a fitting testimonial to a cyclist.

    That's awful news. I only knew him from here. By all accounts he had a bit of an engine in him. May he rest and ride in peace forever.

    That's awful news. Always a great contributor to this forum, and a really nice guy.

    Had loads of interactions on here, behind the scenes and a couple of times in real life


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 23,889 Mod ✭✭✭✭CramCycle

    Well f*ck, a really nice guy the few times I talked to him, RIP. Condolences to all who knew him.

  • Registered Users Posts: 24,908 ✭✭✭✭Wishbone Ash

    He certainly had an engine in him. The last time I encountered him (on the road) was going over the 3 sisters (between Naul and Oldtown). He caught up with me and we exchanged a few pleasantries and then he took off as if I was standing still.

    RIP. He was a great contributor on here for many years. My condolences to his family, friends and cycling community.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,910 ✭✭✭letape

    So very sad… I just met him once outside of here and he was a real gentleman. Condolences to his family and friends.

  • RIP Eamonn. Very sad news. Condolences to his family and all who knew him.

    That's just terrible news. Sincere condolences to all his family and friends. RIP Eamonn

    Ah Eamonn, a truly truly lovely person, an absolute gent. So shocking and sad. R.I.P. Eamonn, and massive condolences to his family and friends. I can't believe it.

  • I always enjoyed his contributions to boards.

    May he rest in peace

    RIP Eamonn.

    Only knew him from on here but always a very decent and positive poster.

    I've a memory of him talking of the value of bike to his mental health at one stage of his life. I've a clear memory of him offering to post stuff for free to some random poster. He also posted about his son in relation to mountain biking and photography I believe.

    I know he had an involvement at one stage with Mountain biking in cycling Ireland, maybe in time someone who knew him in the real world might post a tribute to his contribution to cycling and his influence.

    I was just reading an article featuring his son from a few years back, he mentioned his father quite a bit in relation to the bike.

    Very sad when someone so active goes before their time.

    RIP Eamonn. I only knew him from on here but he stood out. I lost the little magnet for my wheel for a cheapo bike computer and he pm'd me for my address out of the blue and sent me a replacement just like that. What an act of class.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,132 ✭✭✭07Lapierre

    Very sorry to hear this. RIP Eamonn

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,590 ✭✭✭Wildly Boaring

    Terrible news.

    We shared a couple turns from scotch hall up through bryanstown one day. Didn't know the man apart from posts here. Great poster, always came across as a gent

  • Moderators, Politics Moderators Posts: 37,103 Mod ✭✭✭✭Seth Brundle

    Awful news. RIP Eamonn

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,123 ✭✭✭Unknown Soldier

    R.I.P. Eamonn.

    He came across as a very nice chap. Very sad news to hear of his passing.

    Condolences to his family and all those who knew him.
