Joey Dunlop (also known as the “King of the Roads” and “Yer Maun” was born in Ballymoney in 1952. This ambitious and courageous man became one of the most successful competitive motorcyclists of all time.

Over the course of his astonishing sporting career he notched up five Formula One World Championships; thirteen wins at the North West 200; 24 wins at the Ulster Grand Prix and a world record 26 wins at the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy. In 1986, he was awarded an MBE by the Queen of England as recognition for his immense sporting achievements and ten years later, he was presented with an OBE for his remarkable humanitarian work with children in Eastern Europe.

On the 2nd July 2000, Joey tragically lost his life whilst racing in Estonia. It is estimated that 60,000 people from across the world came to Ballymoney to attend his funeral.

In May 2011, Ballymoney Borough Council officially opened the Joey Dunlop Memorial Garden. This beautiful and peaceful setting is the perfect tribute to the exceptional man.
