Rea wins Irish motorcyclist award

Ballyclare man Jonathan Rea is named Irish motorcyclist of the year after winning the World Superbike title in 2015.

"It means a lot to me to win the award as it's a public vote and Joey Dunlop's helmet is also on the trophy," said a delighted Rea at the Cornmarket Enkalon awards in Belfast.

"But the most special thing is coming back here and spending the night with all the motorcycling enthusiasts and all the other riders."
