Bikers pay respects to well-known garage owner

More than 100 bikes set off in a procession behind the hearse of Colin Ireland at his funeral today (Wednesday).

The incredible turnout was a fine tribute to the founder of Ireland’s Motorcycles in Braunton Road.

The procession was led off by Colin’s grandson, Tom, and led the hearse to the crematorium.

Family members have been paying tribute to Colin, who passed away peacefully at home on May 14, aged 74.
