Eventing Ireland Youth Committee Receives €60K From George Mernagh Memorial Fund

The George Mernagh Memorial Fund will support the Eventing Ireland Youth Committee in 2024 | Tattersalls Ireland

The Eventing Ireland Youth Committee (EIYC) received €60,000 from the George Mernagh Memorial Fund Limited (GMMF) for 2024, Tattersalls Ireland announced on Wednesday. Mernagh was a former managing director of Tattersalls Ireland heavily involved in equestrian sports.

Last year, the GMMF awarded the EIYC €40,000 for various innovative supports. After the marked success of the programme in 2023, they were awarded an additional €20,000. The funding will allow subsidised regional training programmes with high performance trainers for all EIYC members. In addition, bursaries are being offered to encourage riders of all levels to attend their first international event. Additionally, a one-time bursary will be awarded to an under-25 member aspiring to turn professional, aiming to bridge the gap between youth programs and the professional sphere. As well, there is also funding for a youth exchange initiative, covering a high-performance manager and team groom. For more information, please visit the Eventing Ireland website.
