A woman, wife of a horse trainer, has died after she fell from a horse.

Maria O’Grady, the wife of a well known racehorse trainer, has died following injuries suffered during a riding accident, as reported by the Tipperary star.

The Ballymackey resident and wife of Edward O’Grady died suddenly following a tragic fall from a horse whilst on the hunting field. She is survived by her two daughters, Rosie Mai and Mimi, as well as her husband Edward and his older children Jonathan, Amber and Lucy.

Her husband Edward is well known on the race circuit, and trains out of Ballynonty’s Killeen Stables. He is also one of the country’s most successful trainers at Cheltenham, having had 18 previous winners, putting him third on the list.

“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." said a statement released yesterday.

Our thoughts and sympathies go out to the O’Grady family.
