Incident happened just after TT 2019
A motorcyclist who died in a crash in the south of the Island just after last year's TT was almost three times over the drink-drive limit, an inquest has heard.
John Nally from Athlone, Ireland, collided with another motorcycle on the Ballakillowey Road on 9 June.
The 58-year-old lost control of his Suzuki and died after sustaining a serious head injury.
Coroner of Inquests Jayne Hughes recorded a verdict of accidental death.
Mr Nally, who was visiting the Isle of Man for the TT, had been drinking in Douglas the night before the incident, and a post-mortem recorded a high blood-alcohol level.
Ms Hughes said the alcohol "would have affected his ability to ride his motorcycle".
The post-mortem also found evidence of heart disease and the inquest heard that Mr Nally had seen a doctor about dizzy spells, which Ms Hughes said may have contributed to the accident.
