Tragic motorcyclist William Dunlop's partner Janine Brolly celebrates birth of daughter

William Dunlop's partner Janine Brolly has announced the birth of the couple's second daughter.

The baby was born on Saturday afternoon, September 15, but has not yet been named. The new addition is a younger sister to two-year-old Ella.

Janine confirmed the news on Facebook on Monday afternoon: "We welcomed our second little girl into the world on Saturday afternoon. She has the most amazing big sister and there is no question that Daddy would have been besotted. Name still to be decided but we are just all settling into life together at home.

"Grateful for two precious girls who are keeping my heart beating."

William was killed just over two months ago in a collision in practice at the Skerries 100 road races in Co Dublin.


William, son of the late Robert and nephew of the legendary Joey, was making his return to the sport after pulling out of this year's Isle of Man TT to be with Janine during her pregnancy.
