Body of missing UCC graduate found in France

Monday, 13th November, 2017 11:25am

The family of a former UCC student have confirmed that her body has been found in France.

The body of Eimear Noonan from county Clare was discovered near a viaduct after she went missing in the town of Annonay in south-eastern France on Wednesday.

Her brother Cathal wrote on social media last night that French authorities had confirmed that a body found in the region on Friday was that of the missing 21 year old.

Eimear Noonan graduated from UCC last month and had been working as an English language teaching assistant in the Font Chevalier d'Annonay school in France. She died after falling while out running the same day she was reported missing.

Her brother’s Facebook statement said Eimear, who was also a violinist with the college orchestra, was a “warm, bubbly person who had already made a wide circle of friends (in France) through her love of music and singing”. In the statement he also thanked all those who had shared Eimear’s photo for their support and asked for privacy as her family “start the journey of grieving”.
