The funeral of the late William Dunlop took place in Ballymoney this afternoon. The 32-year-old died in a crash during practice at the Skerries 100 meeting near Dublin on Saturday.

The funeral was held at Garryduff Presbyterian Church this afternoon followed by an interment in the adjoining churchyard.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Brenda Chivers expressed her “deepest sympathies” to the Dunlop family.

“The entire Borough has been left shocked and saddened with the tragic events that unfolded at the weekend. I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to the entire Dunlop family at this very sad time. William was a fantastic sporting legend and he will be remembered for his many achievements,” she said.

Books of Condolence are available for members of the public to sign at Ballymoney Town Hall, Coleraine Town Hall, Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre, Limavady and Sheskburn House, Ballycastle.

For the funeral, William’s family have requested family flowers only, with any donations in lieu of the Injured Riders Welfare Fund, and they said friends are welcome at his mother’s home.
