Biker Paul was ‘absolute legend’

Have your say

TRIBUTES have been paid to a popular motorcyclist who died in a collision on his bike.

Paul McGrath, aged 47, of Darton Hall Drive, Darton, Barnsley, died after a collision with a car at the junction of Darton Lane and Pye Avenue, Mapplewell, last Friday.

Mr McGrath, a binman for 22 years, was a member of Barnsley Scooter Club and had only bought his bike to get to work two days before the smash.

His funeral was held at All Saints Church, Darton.

The father-of-two, who had two grandchildren, was described by his brother Craig as ‘an absolute legend’ in a moving tribute.

He said: “He was a top boy in town and all his mates will say the same.

“It’s hard to get your head round it - he was just coming home and now he’s gone.”

Mr McGrath’s sister-in-law, Maggie Kerfoot, said: “He was like a hero to everyone who met him and his sense of humour was great.”
