Did you know: 

From Cratloe, County Clare, Mark was 19 years of age when partnering his first winner, the Eric McNamara-trained Blackjack Boy, on the opening day of the Listowel Festival in September, 2020. 

Mark's first big winner came in the shape of the Sean O'Brien-trained Nell's Well in the Grade 3 Singletons Supervalu Stayers Novice Hurdle at Cork on Sunday, December 5, 2021. He was unable to claim his 7lbs allowance in the race. 

Mark rode his first winner at the Cheltenham Festival when successful on the Joseph O'Brien-trained Banbridge in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle, the last race on the final day of the 2022 meeting. His success meant that all seven races on the day were won by Irish-trained horses and ridden by Irish-based jockeys.
