Phuket expat hotelier and Hash House Harrier dies in motorbike crash | Thaiger

PHUKET: A Phuket expat was killed yesterday morning when he lost control of his 1,400cc motorcycle on a notoriously dangerous curve on Thepkrasattri Road.

Irish national Patrick “Paddy” O’Mahony, who turned 57 on Sunday, was travelling toward the Sarasin Bridge on his red Kawasaki ZZR 1400 when he crashed near the turnoff to the JW Marriott Resort & Spa.

A funeral service has been tentatively scheduled for this Saturday at 12:30pm. The Phuket Gazette will post updates as they become available.

Lt Col Watcharin Jiratthikarlwiwat of Tah Chat Chai Police was notified of the accident at about 7am.

“He was riding at speed and lost control of his motorcycle near the Marriott. The area is very dangerous and accidents occur there frequently.

“I have even received reports that police have had accidents at the same location,” Col Watcharin said.

“He was alive when we arrived at the scene, but did not survive,” he added.

Paddy, as his friends knew him, was the owner of Paddy’s Inn View Apartments in Patong and an active member of the Phuket Hash House Harriers.

Irish Honorary Consul for Phuket Hélène Fallon-Wood confirmed to the Phuket Gazette that Mr O’Mahony’s family has been notified of his death.
