Barry O'Neill | Tattersalls Ireland

Current and five-time Irish Point-to-Point Champion Barry O'Neill has been appointed to the Tattersalls Ireland Bloodstock Team, effective Feb. 1. O'Neill will operate in a bloodstock representative role and join the inspection panel for all National Hunt sales, and he will also assist the team in sourcing top quality NH horses for the group including the Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales. O'Neill has 670 point-to-point winners under his belt and was the first rider to ever win all four regional titles in the same season.

Tattersalls Ireland CEO Simon Kerins said, “We are delighted to welcome Barry to the team at Tattersalls Ireland, he is an excellent addition to the bloodstock and inspection teams. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge on the pointing and racing fields and an expansive network of contacts which aligns very well with Tattersalls Ireland's objectives.”

Added O'Neill, “I am thrilled to be joining the Tattersalls Ireland team and I look forward to visiting many of Tattersalls Ireland's vendors over the coming weeks. A key part of my role will be inspecting some of the best National Hunt stock in Ireland and I believe my experience riding for many leading Point-to-Point handlers gives me a deep understanding of what purchasers look for when buying their future winners. I am also looking forward to working with the Tattersalls Cheltenham team where I will be assisting sourcing horses whilst continuing in my role riding each week.”
