Down syndrome

Dozens of motorbikes escort remains of Aidan Lynam home to Dublin

The father of three was killed in a crash yesterday.

THE BODY OF Aidan Lynam has been escorted back to his home county of Dublin by dozens of motorbikes.

Lynam was taking part in a charity bike rally in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland in Limerick yesterday when he was killed after his motorbike struck a car.

The father of three, aged in his 40s, was rushed to hospital but later pronounced dead.


He was taking part in Rev-up4DSI, an event he helped organised that has helped raise over €1.6 million for the organisation.

The hearse carrying the man’s remains was flanked by dozens of his fellow motorcyclists as it drove to Dublin this evening.

Speaking this afternoon to RTÉ’s News at One, the chief executive of DSI Pat Clarke praised the work of Lynam, adding that he had been outspoken on issues such as medical cards and teaching hours.

“He will be sadly missed by everyone,” Clarke said.
