Funeral of Martin Finnegan

The funeral of Irish road racer and TT star Martin Finnegan took place in his home village of Lusk in County Dublin earlier today (Wednesday).

The 29-year-old was killed in an accident at the Tandragee 100 meeting in Northern Ireland on Saturday, just three weeks before he was due to compete in this year's TT.

Manx representatives at the service today included Tourism and Leisure Minister Adrian Earnshaw and his predecessor David Cretney, the current DTI Minister.

Mr Earnshaw says the local community turned out en masse to pay their tributes (audio file attached):
