Following the service William Dunlop was laid to rest in the adjoining graveyard.

The 32-year-old was killed while riding his Temple Golf Club Yamaha during practice for the Skerries 100 in Co Dublin on Saturday afternoon.

William's father Robert was killed following an accident in practice at the NW200 in 2008 while uncle Joey died after a crash in Estonia in 2000.

He is survived by his partner Janine, who is due to give birth in September. His daughter Ella's second birthday is on Sunday.

Reverend John Kirkpatrick, who is one of the chaplains to the Motorcycle Union of Ireland, led the funeral service and paid tribute to both the man and his career.

He said: "In preparing for today I have read and researched much about William’s life and career... As I listened I’ve heard about his thoughtfulness as a child, his strong bond with his brothers, his kindness to his mum and his deep devotion to his dad.

"I have witnessed the moving love between William and Janine and his delight as a father to Ella."

Rev Kirkpatrick said since the start of his career at 17, William had been "an example of a great sportsman", pointing to his record of 108 national wins and 11 international wins.

He said: "We have watched his smooth style on the track and his gracious and thoughtful manner off it. As Michael said in his book 'Nothing made his dad more proud than giving William a bike that he then goes out and wins on'... 'Class will always tell and Dad and William have it in spades'.

"Ten years ago here in this same Church at Robert’s funeral I said 'not many people finish what they start, not all persevere in adversity or push themselves to their potential- this made Robert stand out from the crowd'.

"William watched and learned from Robert and his life developed those same qualities and although his life has been shorter than many and certainly shorter than we hoped, the one he chose to live was not dull but full."
