Donncha McCarthy


Donncha is 24 years old and comes from Co. Kerry, Ireland. A graduate of University College Dublin with Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Sciences, Donncha also completed the Irish National Stud Course in 2019. Prior to being accepted for Godolphin Flying Start, Donncha worked in The Beeches Stud in Co. Waterford for three breeding seasons as well as travelling to Australia to work for Newgate Farm, Snowden Racing and Magic Millions.

“I am thrilled to have been selected for Godolphin Flying Start. This program gives me an unrivalled opportunity to immerse myself in the thoroughbred industry worldwide. I look forward to furthering my knowledge of international bloodstock and racing as well as creating a network around the globe. Other than horse racing I follow most sports but especially the GAA, I also enjoy to play golf at a non-competitive level.”
