Race tribute just hours after tragedy

Racing is to go ahead at the Skerries 100 in Ireland today, following the death of William Dunlop.

The well-known Ballymoney rider was killed in an incident during practice yesterday.

With permission of his family, the event's organisers have confirmed today's event will run as planned as 'a fitting tribute to William'.

The entire prize fund will also be donated to the Dunlop family.

The Loughshinny Motorcycle Supporters Club has passed its 'heartfelt sympathy' to those who knew William Dunlop - adding 'thoughts and prayers are with them at this very sad time'.
