22-year-old man dies after kayak capsizes in Thailand

A Co Armagh man has died in Thailand after an incident involving a kayak.

dhran O’Neill from Lurgan was last seen kayaking in Bangkok’s Khao Sok National Park on Saturday.

Odhran’s kayak is believed to have capsized and after saying he was going to swim to shore, he was not seen afterwards.

Odhran’s sister, Michaela, said his life was “cut short far too early”.

“He was out to see the world and live his best life as we all wished for him,” she said, posting on social media.

“He will be remembered as a strong, charming and all around best boy. Thank you to everyone who shared and we appreciate all the effort, but he is with the angels now. I love you forever big brother. Forever in my heart.”

A local GAA club – whose senior player Rogan McVeigh is a cousin of Mr O’Neill – had issued a call for information but confirmed on Saturday night the 22-year-old’s body had been found.

“Unfortunately, it is not the result that we had all hoped and prayed for. Odhrán’s body was found this morning,” they posted on the Clann Éireann GAC Facebook page.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported the search effort by sharing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the O’Neill, O’Dowd and McVeigh families at this very difficult time.

“Go raibh suaimhneas síoraí ar a anam dílis.”

Bad weather prevailed in the area where Mr O’Neill’s body was found and passenger ferries in Khao Sok National Park were ordered to suspend operations yesterday.
