From Drumree, County
Meath, Barry Geraghty is one of the greatest jump jockeys of his generation. He rode five winners at the Cheltenham Festival in 2003 and won the Grand National at Aintree on Monty's Pass only weeks later. On the back of that remarkable success, he was voted RTE Sports Personality of the Year. Never far from big-race success throughout his career, Barry was appointed as first jockey to owner JP McManus on June 21st, 2015.
