Should Belfast International Airport be renamed after Joey Dunlop?

1 Mins read

A campaign to rename Belfast International Airport after the late Joey Dunlop has gained quite a bit of support.

The motorcyclist who hailed from Ballymoney, died tragically in 2000 when he lost control of his bike during a race in Estonia.

While a memorial garden has been erected in his home town of Ballymoney and the local leisure centre has been named after him, fans have started a petition to rename Belfast International Airport after him.

The petition, which has amassed more than 3,000 votes in just two days can be viewed at https://www.change.org/p/northern-ireland-assembly-change-the-name-of-belfast-international-airport-to-joey-dunlop-international-airport
