    William Dunlop

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/northern-ireland/44754057

    Northern Ireland motorcycle racer William Dunlop has been killed in an incident at the Skerries 100 road races in County Dublin on Saturday.

    Dunlop, 32, was taking part in practice for the event when the crash happened.

    The Ballymoney man was a member of the renowned Dunlop family and was a winner at the North West 200 and Ulster GP.

    William's father Robert died as a result of an accident at the North West 200 in 2008, while his uncle Joey was killed in a crash in Estonia in 2000.

    Joey holds the record for the most Isle of Man TT wins with 26, while William's brother Michael has registered 18 wins at the event over the Mountain Course.
    RIP.

    I really hoped that this was fake news when I saw it earlier.

    That family has given so much to road racing. RIP.

    Terribly sad but not totally unexpected for the Dunlopís (many thought it would be Michael a few years ago)
    RIP young man
    If a man speaks his mind in a forest and no woman hears him...is he still wrong ?

    Very sad news indeed, I was shocked to hear it last evening.
    One heck of a road-racer, and a very humble and likeable chap.
    May he R.I.P. with Robert and Joey.

    Very sad news, I met William at the marshal's supper some years ago, a genuinely nice bloke with no edge or ego.
    My deepest sympathy to his friends and family.

    RIP.
