Did you know:

From County Limerick, Donal rode out for trainers Enda Bolger and John Gleeson while at school and worked for Charles Byrnes for a year after completing his Leaving Certificate in 2012 before joining Robert Tyner. He has worked for Bolger on a full-time basis since 2015 and while he failed to ride a winner on the track as an amateur rider, his luck changed straight away when he turned professional. Just two days after gaining his licence, he partnered the Enda Bolger-trained Auvergnat to win the P.P.Hogan Memorial Cross Country Chase at Punchestown on Sunday, February 5th, 2017. It was his first ride in the paid ranks. 

Less than 15 months later, Donal was crowned champion conditional rider for the 2017/18 season with a total of 33 winners.
