Does anybody remember this great jump jockey from the past who was killed in a horrific car crash many years ago?

I was quite young but recall that he was the best jumps jockey of his era by a long way. He was an entertaining character and always gave the press a very 'Irish ' perspective. His car ran off the road on the corner of the Lancefield/Sunbury Roads. Didn't he ride for Jim Houlahan early on?
