The Mayor of Derry and Strabane has opened Book of Condolence in memory of William Dunlop at the Guildhall today. Extending his condolences and sympathy to the Dunlop family and wider racing fraternity, Mayor Boyle said it was with great shock and sadness that he learned of Williams’s passing and he felt it was appropriate to open a Book of Condolence in the Guildhall to allow local fans to express their sympathy and show support to the family. He commented: “I remember meeting William’s Dad, Robert, and his uncle Joey when I was a young man – they were true gentlemen and sporting legends that are sorely missed. "It is devastating news that William has also lost his life so tragically and my thoughts and prayers and those of the people of this Council area, are with the Dunlop family at this very difficult and sad time.” The Book of Condolence will be open for members of the public to sign at the Guildhall from 9 am to 5pm.
