A YOUNG Irish mother has been found dead in her hotel room on the Spanish island of Ibiza by her heartbroken sister.
Amy Connor, who was just 23 years old, tragically died in her sleep while holidaying with her sibling Toni and cousin Alison. Amy was staying at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel in the resort of San Antonio, where her body was found by her sibling, Toni, 26. The sisters, who are from Coleraine, Northern Ireland, had been sunbathing before they went back to their room for a rest on August 20.
Toni, 26, said: “We had been down to the pool and then came back up to the room for a while, so Amy got into the shower and then got into bed. I went and sat out on the balcony and ate some crisps and chilled and when I came back in, she was still in the bed… it was so surreal, it didn’t make sense. It was just such a shock.”
The exact cause of Amy’s death is as yet not clear. Toni is full of praise for the hotel staff at the Ibiza Rocks resort for helping her grieving family saying she was “gob-smacked at their generosity in our time of need. The hotel staff were incredible, we couldn’t have asked for better,” she said, adding staff packed their suitcases for them, provided food and offered them a free hotel in London.
The 26-year-old called Amy “friendly and outgoing” saying she was “the kind of person if you met her once you’d definitely remember her.”
Toni spoke of the support she had received for the family and said: “It’s no exaggeration when I say I have had over 1,000 messages sent to me just on Facebook, there have been bunches of flowers and cards and everything sent to the house, people have been so generous. Amy was the kind of person who was friends with everyone, it never made a difference what side of the town they were from, she was just friends with everyone and that’s what everyone loved about her.”
Amy leaves behind her daughter, parents Carol and Arthur and three siblings.
