The Brooklyn Eagle reported earlier this week that restaurateur Seamus O’Toole died after falling down a flight of stairs on September 6. The freak accident occurred at Eamonn’s 41 Murray Street location. The beloved entrepreneur will be laid to rest today beginning with a mass at St. Bernadette’s Church at 10:45 a.m.
The Eagle reports that the Montague Street location is “expected” to stay in business. Last month, when it was announced that 172-174 Montague Street and its air rights were sold to a developer O’Toole told the Eagle’s Dennis Holt, ““Well, we’ll see what happens next year; after all this is a valuable space.”
