His wife Julie was with him, when he began to complain of chest pains. She desperately tried to revive him with CPR. Also, paramedics also tried to revive him, but unfortunately, he was pronounced dead as he arrived at Royal Blackburn Hospital shortly after 11:30 p.m. on Saturday.

His wife paid tribute to a “loving husband”. They were married for 23 years and Julie said, “I want people to know how he would help anybody whether it was a life-long friend, or someone he had just met.”

“We were having a fantastic time at the Christmas party and Eamonn had just finished dancing to Gangnam Style,” Julie said of the incident. “He was up on stage and entertaining everybody.

“He said he had a bit of a pain and just collapsed.” Julie continued: “Eamonn was such an intelligent man, he inspired our children and made sure they had a good education. He loved me dearly and would tell people all the time. I know he thought the world of us.”
Still, investigation has still to be done by the police to make sure that there has been no foul play in the incident.
