Eoin was murdered on Easter Sunday by British agents who had infiltrated the PIRA in the Newry area. Eoin was from a strongly republican family, and even at the age of 23, was a seasoned operator for both the IRA and then the IPLO having carried out numerous actions against the Brits and their proxys. Recently it emerged in a report by the police ombudsman, that his killers had been shielded by the RUC special branch before, during and after the murder. Eoins family believe that the murder was a Brit inspired plot to provoke tensions between Republicans in Newry. The fact the the crown forces would engage in a plot to eliminate Eoin came as no surprise to any who knew him, as he had been regularly threatened by the Brits and the RUC from a very early age. A true Republican, killed by British agents, never forgotten.
