He also spent four years working on the first Rapid Response vehicle to be stationed in the North West. 

Those who know him reflect on a paramedic who “was always knowns and will always be remembered for being patient-focused.  He was someone who put the patient first and foremost at the heart of everything he did.”

Eamon is looking forward to enjoying his retirement and spending time with his wife Veronica and family, he is especially looking forward to spending some quality time with his grandchildren.   A keen fisherman and hillwalker, he is looking forward to spending more time enjoying these pursuits.   

A coffee morning was held in Letterkenny Ambulance station and colleagues past and present gathered to wish Eamon well in his retirement.
