David Hourigan - RIP

I was shocked to hear tonight of the passing of Limericks David Hourigan, winner of the 1992 Manx International. He was 38. His body was found in a hotel in Thailand. Reports suggest he may have been dead for a number of days before staff discovered his body. The circumstances of his death are being investigated.

David was a dominant rider in Ireland in the 80's and 90's. Apart from his Manx win he also represented Ireland many times, including in the Nissan Classic. His career was however marred by a positive test in the 1994 Rás for which he received a three month suspension.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
