Did you know:

Eoin’s route to becoming a racehorse trainer was not a conventional one, he did not work full-time in the industry before taking out a licence to train. He worked for Guinness in Waterford Brewery and gained experience riding out at the weekends and holidays for Aidan O'Brien's father in law, Joe Crowley.

However, Eoin always harboured dreams of training on a full-time basis. In 1996, he purchased a small farm close to his home village of Slieverue and over time he has developed the farm from a greenfield site to a state-of-the-art training facility.

Eoin’s top-class training facility at Beacon Hill, Slieverue is right on the Kilkenny-Waterford border so although his yard at Beacon Hill is located in County Kilkenny it is just also 10mins from Waterford City Centre. 

As a permit holder, Eoin enjoyed his first winner when Treanaree won a handicap hurdle in Navan. In 2000, Eoin took out his public licence and soon after Rua Lass duly obliged with his second winner landing a bumper at Cork. 

Eoin has also developed an excellent reputation for sourcing horses that have competed at the highest level. Kazal, Lounaos, Our Conor, Don’t Be Bitin, Glencove Marina, St Devote, The Last Derby and Road To Respect are just some of the horses Eoin has either purchased or sourced for owners.
