Commenting North Antrim DUP MLA Mervyn Storey said,
“This is a tragedy beyond belief. The Dunlop family has again been plunged into grief.
William Dunlop was a legend in his own right, on and off the road. He was a household name.
Everyone in Northern Ireland will be saddened by this news. However the sadness will be particularly felt in his home town of Ballymoney. The Dunlop family are well known and greatly respected in our town and further afield, we feel the great loss and sadness at this news.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family circle at their time. The entire family circle will be remembered by everyone during this difficult time. We assure them of our support as they face the coming days.”
