    Story

    I met Eoin at the London Screenwriter's Festival in 2012. We kept in touch over the years, sharing bits of work, making intros, getting the occasional coffee. I didn't know him that well, but I knew he loved writing. Today I learned that he had lost his battle with cancer. What awful sad news. He leaves his wife Bo and young daughter Willow behind him, and I send them my heart felt sympathy. I know we all do.

    I'll remember him, and his memory will inspire me. He is someone who kept going, kept plugging away and whose persistance was just starting to pay off: his original TV series BROKEN KINGDOM was in development with Fastnet Films and New Media Vision with support from the Irish Film Board. He was also the lead writer on a new TV project with Hat Trick and Amber Productions, plus his film script RED FLAG was under option to NightSky Films.

    I wanted to make a gesture to help little Willow have a holiday or nice day trip, or anything, and thought that others - especially fellow writers at the London Screenwriters Festival this weekend - might want to do the same.

    All money raised will be given to Eoin's wife.

      Thanks so much to everyone that has donated and shared the link. I spoke about Eoin at the Festival and how his memory inspires me and I know that others spoke about him too. We are all so sad, but I found it heartening to listen to people speaking so warmly about Eoin. Everyone I've spoken to is also united in sending love and support to Bo and Willow. Thanks again.
