Did you know: 

From Doneraile, County Cork, Darragh was 18 years of age when he rode his first winner on the Enda Bolger-trained William Du Berlais at Killarney in July, 2018. His career was well and truly up and running when partnered the same horse to win again just five days later at Tipperary.

Another owned by JP McManus, Ballyoisin, gave Darragh notable early success when winning the €100,000 Ladbrokes Ireland Listowel Handicap Hurdle at the Listowel festival in September of the same year. 

Darragh rode his 60th winner and rode out his claim when landing the Cork Grand National on the Michael Hourigan trained The Gatechecker in early November, 2019.
