Hodson Bay memorial event for Eamon O’Donohoe today

The tragic death of water enthusiast, Eamon O’ Donohoe is being remembered through activities at Hodson Bay in Athlone today.

Eamon who was from Kiltoom died on Lough Ree on the 4th of March this year after getting into difficulty while he was kayaking.

The local community have organised some events to remember the father of three and help support his young family.


A social night is taking place in the hotel tonight, and a canoe and kayak race is taking place today at Hodson Bay organised by Inny Kayak Club.

Bob Lacey from the club says they were delighted when Eamon joined them in recent years and hope today will be a fitting tribute to him…
