Thousands of mourners said their final fair well to road racer William Dunlop as his coffin made it’s was along the Garryduff Road outside Ballymoney to the nearby Presbyterian Christ for his funeral service.


After the service he was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery beside his late father, also a road racer, Robert Dunlop.

William, 32, died following a crash on a practice race at the Skerries 100 Road Races on Saturday.
