About The George Mernagh Memorial Fund
The George Mernagh Memorial Fund Limited, was established in memory of the late George Mernagh who had a lifetime interest in equestrian sports. The GMMF objective ‘supports participation, education and development in all aspects of equine sport’. George Mernagh began his career in horse racing as a Qualified Rider where he rode 27 winners in point-to-points between 1978 and 1984 before embarking on a successful career as a professional jockey. Following this George joined Tattersalls Ireland and by 2007 assumed the role of Managing Director. Many industry leaders have followed a similar path via the qualified rider route.
