His music has been reviewed in Tempo magazine which was followed up by a seminar by the esteemed architect John Wheatley on Music and Architecture at the Royal Academy of Music. Examples of his music can be found in the recently published "Notations 21", a book inspired by John Cage’s “Notations”. This music was also featured in an exhibition at the Chelsea Art Museum, New York as part of the launch of the aforementioned book.

In addition to his work as a composer, Eoin is in demand as an arranger particularly of wind and orchestral music in Ireland, the UK, and Europe, and has maintained his links with the music education sector, involved in teaching a number of different projects in the UK and abroad, and has been involved in creating music for a number of other performing groups, and working in schools (Eoin is a fully qualified teacher). He is in particular demand as an arranger for wind bands, and has written for numerous bands in the UK, Ireland, Netherlands and Italy.

Tonality is the key feature of his music. Earlier pieces were very highly structured, and after a period of aleatoric and improvisation-based composition, reliance on intuition came to the forefront of his music, as well as the use of humour and references to traditional Irish music. Throughout his music, there is a very minimalist approach taken, with little in the way of dynamics or articulation, and a tendency to concentrate on one simple idea.
