Oliver Brady: Trainer from Monaghan dies aged 75
Last updated on .From the section Horse Racing
Popular Irish jump racing trainer Oliver Brady has died at the age of 75 following a long battle with cancer.
Brady, from County Monaghan, was known for his celebrations in the winner's enclosure, when he would often make a rousing speech and lead a sing-song.
Despite being given just six months to live in 2003 and having a quadruple bypass operation five years later, he was a tireless charity fundraiser.
His best horses included steeplechaser Maralan and hurdler Ebadiyan.
Grand National and Cheltenham Gold Cup-winning jockey Barry Geraghty was among those to pay tribute.
"Very sad news about Oliver Brady, a great character and a very charitable man. RIP," he said.
