Eamonn McEvoy | Tattersalls Ireland

Eamonn McEvoy, who has been at the helm of Nass racecourse for almost five years, will join Tattersalls Ireland as bloodstock sales director. Prior to his tenure at Naas, McEvoy served as racing and stud manager for Rick Barnes of Grangecon Stud for eight years.

Additionally, he has worked at stud farms in England, the USA and Australia, as well as Saudi Arabia, where he worked as assistant manager under the late Michael Buckley at HH Prince Sultan Al Kabeer's racing and breeding operation, playing a pivotal role in the development of a new racetrack for Prince Sultan.

Commenting on the new appointment, Simon Kerins, CEO of Tattersalls Ireland said, “We are delighted to appoint Eamonn as bloodstock sales director of Tattersalls Ireland. Eamonn's extensive leadership experience and proven ability to drive change and improvement within the industry make him an invaluable addition to our team.

“Having regularly dealt with Eamonn while he was racing and stud manager at Grangecon Stud I can lay testament to his professionalism and knowledge. He is also extremely well regarded throughout the industry and on behalf of all the team at Tattersalls Ireland, we welcome Eamonn to his new role and look forward to working with him.”

McEvoy, who will commence his new position in early May, added, “I am honoured to be joining Tattersalls Ireland, especially at such an important time of the year with the Tattersalls Ireland Breeze-Up Sale and the Store Sales fast approaching. The company has a proud history with a diverse calendar of sales which continue to go from strength to strength and I'm looking forward to working alongside the well-respected teams at Fairyhouse and Newmarket. I've enjoyed a fantastic time at Naas Racecourse and would like to express my gratitude to the board and team there and wish them continued success going forward.”
