My name is David O’Farrell, and I am from County Dublin in Ireland. I did a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and subsequently worked for the The Irish Field, reporting on point to point racing. I have also worked as a stud groom in Coolmore Stud in County Tipperary as well as a content creator with the racing syndicate All About Sunday. I have just finished my master’s degree in Management from Queens University Belfast, and I am thoroughly looking forward to the next two years on the Godolphin Flying Start programme. I’m hoping to use everything that I learn over the next couple of years to become a leader in the thoroughbred industry, and I am incredibly grateful for this outstanding opportunity.
