THE FATHER of drowned IT worker Eoin Curran is planning a US memorial service to honour his son. Curran, a 30-year-old employee of Google went missing after he fell overboard during a freak storm off the coast of Long Island, New York on July 25. Curran was on his first sailing lesson at the time.

The US coastguard recovered Curran’s body on Saturday and last night his family were making arrangements to fly to the US to collect his remains.

“Yes, they found Eoin. We will be travelling to New York to hold a memorial service for him,” Eoin’s father John Curran said.

Curran, a graduate of Trinity College from Templeogue Dublin had only recently moved to New York. He had previously owned a tech start-up with his brother. Dr Siobhan Clarke, a lecturer of Curran’s in Trinity College, described Eoin as “the most talented student” she had ever taught.
