Eoghan O’Grady Appointed Cork Racecourse Manager

Eoghan O’Grady has been appointed Racecourse Manager at Cork Racecourse Mallow. Eoghan takes up his new role with immediate effect as Andrew Hogan moves to Tipperary Racecourse ahead of a major redevelopment at the track.

A former amateur rider, O’Grady held a trainer’s licence from 2005 to December of last year.

“With the support of the board of directors and the hard-working team here I am very much looking forward to this role,” O’Grady said. “I am very grateful to Andrew Hogan for all his guidance since the start of the year and wish him well in future endeavours.”

Chairman of Cork Racecourse Mallow, Tom Gaffney, said, “On behalf of my board colleagues, the management and support team, and our loyal customers, I wish to express gratitude to Andrew for his commitment, loyalty and vision for Cork Racecourse. His commitment was notable particularly during the COVID period, but also in the development of the seven-furlong track. We wish him continued success in delivering the plans for Tipperary Racecourse.”

“We look forward to working with Eoghan as we seek to optimise the investment in the track and facilities by satisfying the enjoyment criteria of our existing and potential customers.”
