The ITBA are delighted to announce the appointment of Peter O’Reilly as the new Chief Executive of the Irish Thoroughbred Breeders Association.

Peter O’Reilly is a small breeder and has been a member of the ITBA for a number of years. He currently sits on the board of the AIRO and comes from a family that are steeped in the bloodstock industry.

Peter has had a long career in the financial services industry, before establishing his own successful business. In addition to his excellent knowledge of the industry, Peter brings a business acumen that will be very valuable to the ITBA.

Peter O’Reilly, will be supported in the office by the ITBA team of Danielle Deveney and Hannah Marks. He will take over the role of chief executive from Interim CEO Pat Keogh who has done tremendous work during his short time with the ITBA. Peter O’Reilly commented “I am really looking forward to working with Irish Breeders and with the team at the ITBA. I hope to be able to deliver support and success to Irish breeders and to drive forward the ITBA with the help of its dedicated Council and committee members.”

Cathy Grassick, Chairman of ITBA commented “On behalf of the ITBA Council, I am delighted that Peter O’Reilly has accepted this position to represent and support the breeders of Ireland. I look forward to working with Peter and wish him the very best in his new role. While this is an exciting appointment for the ITBA it is also tinged with sadness as this position was held by the late Una Tormey, our previous ITBA Chief executive who was so dedicated in her work. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Interim CEO Pat Keogh for his excellent work and support in his time with the ITBA.”
