THE GLENBURNIE TEAM

GLENBURNIE TEAM

MARTIN HORAN

Head Man at Glenburnie. Hails from closeby in Kilmessan. Martin was the deserved winner of the Stud & Stable Staff Leadership Award 2014. Puts us all to shame as he is known to run the Hill of Tara after his morning lots!

SHANE LYONS

Assistant to Ger & Transport Manager for the yard. Like Ger, was a National Hunt jockey in the UK in a former life! Likely to see him at every race meeting overseeing Ger's runners and raceday staff.

ANDREW DUFF

Assistant to Ger and native of Tara, Co. Meath. Duff was a successful NH jockey in Ireland before making the transition to assistant. Likely to see him down at the start on raceday, keeping everything cool, calm and collected.

KERRI LYONS

Assistant to Ger and responsible for keeping our owners up to date. Big part of the team at the yearling sales every autumn. Generally followed around the yard by two gorgeous and faithful friends - Louis and Peanut!

COLIN KEANE

Champion jockey Colin, comes from just down the road in Trim. Joined as Apprentice to Ger in 2013. Became Champion Apprentice in 2014 and Champion Jockey 2017 & 2020. Rode his first Group 1 in Ireland in 2019 and two Irish classics in 2020.

GARY CARROLL

From Co. Kildare, Gary rides work in Glenburnie twice weekly and is an excellent judge. He has been associated with the yard since 2004 and has ridden many big winners for Ger over the years.

SAM EWING

Apprentice to Ger since 2020. From Co. Down, Sam clocked up over 100 winners on the pony circuit including the prestigious Dingle Derby before taking out his licence.

SEAN BIRD

Hails from Dunleer in Co. Louth. Joined the team as Apprentice in 2019 having graduated from R.A.C.E. (Ireland's Racing Academy). Sean rides out daily as well as race riding and attending racemeetings for us.

HANNAH SEARLE

Hannah, originally from the island of Sark, works in our office looking after accounts, payroll and HR side of the operation. Veterinary background, gardening queen and another canine devotee!

MARIE-LOU DONNELLY

From Co. Meath and part of Glenburnie's racing office since 2018. Marie-Lou's job is to look after entries, declarations and make sure the racing administration side of things is up to speed. Likely to have lots of lists and sticky post-its on her desk!

JASON MCKEOWN

Very succesful National Hunt jockey in Ireland and since then studied Equine Dentistry in the US. From Co. Down, Jason clocks up many miles around our gallop as an exercise rider as well as travelling the country taking care of teeth.

ANTHONY LYNCH

Master farrier from Summerhill, Co. Meath. Anthony has looked after Ger's horses from the very beginning. He is never more than a phonecall away in times of need and and comes up with masterful solutions for horses with difficult feet.
