Eamonn Martin Death, Cause of Death – It is with great sadness that Sophia announces the passing of our Co-Founder and Board Member Eamonn Martin. Eamonn leaves behind a lasting legacy in the work of Sophia, all our thoughts are with his family.
Reflecting on Eamonn’s contribution to Sophia, Jean Quinn D.W outlined the journey that both she and Eamonn shared in building a unique and radically different response to homelessness. Jean remarked that “because of Eamonn’s work, individuals, couples and families were supported to have a home of their own.
He was a most valued colleague and friend and our thoughts are with his family at this time of great loss” His name has been synonymous with the work of Sophia and he was one of the most respected figures within the organization. Eamonn’s values and vision were instrumental in growing Sophia to the organization it is today, supporting over 1,000 people across Ireland to recover from the trauma of homelessness.
His energy and drive were inspirational to Sopha staff, who today share a deep sense of sadness and loss. Eamonn leaves behind a lasting legacy in the work of Sophia, all our thoughts are with his family.
