Irishman dies in motorcycle crash | Thaiger

NAKALAY: Paul Dooley from County Cork in the Republic of Ireland died of head injuries at around 2 am on Wednesday, January 18, after a motorcycle crash on the Kalim-Kamala road, near the Thavorn Beach Village & Spa. He was 27.

Hélène Fallon-Wood, the Irish Honorary Consul in Phuket, told the Gazette that Mr Dooley had been living in Kamala for around three months, after having spent some time on Koh Samui. She said that he had planned to make Phuket his home.

Ms Fallon-Wood said that, according to the police report of the accident, Mr Dooley’s motorcycle left the road on a bend on a recently relaid stretch of road, and he collided head-first with what police described as “rocks in a bag on the grass verge”.

Mr Dooley’s brother arrived in Phuket today to take his remains back to Ireland.
