Maria O’Grady Looses Life In Horse Riding Mishap

Mr Edward and Mrs Maria O’Grady during happier times.

It is with sadness we report that Tipperary native, Mrs Maria O’Grady, wife of top Irish National Hunt trainer Mr Edward O’Grady, (Killeen Stables, Ballynonty , Thurles), was tragically killed in a riding accident yesterday, Saturday 25th November.

Mrs O’Grady (née Anderton) originally from Ballymackey, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, sadly leaves behind two daughters Mimi and Rosie Mai and three of Mr O’Grady’s older children Jonathan, Amber and Lucy.

Mr Jonathan O’Grady issued a brief statement yesterday evening, affirming: “On behalf of Edward and family, it is with shock and profound sorrow that I confirm Maria O’Grady died suddenly today, following a tragic fall on the hunting field. Beloved wife, revered mother and ardent friend, she will be inordinately missed. RIP.”
