Devastating tragedy for the Bromhead family and racing community! A 13-year-old son of Henry de Bromhead passed away after an accident at the race in Ireland.
At the Glenbeigh Racing Festival, which was taking place past weekend, Saturday afternoon was shrouded in sadness, tears and pain. Being only 13 years old, Jack de Bromhead, slid off his racing partner. This accident happened during Jack’s participation in the Festival at Rossbeigh beach in County Kerry.
Loved by family & racing community
Henry de Bromhead with his wife Heather posted an online death notice. It said that Jack was an exceptionally loving son to his parents and sisters, full of positivity, loyalty and patience.
The County Waterford family described Jack as always active, perpetually inquiring, and reaching for new interests. He began by assisting with farm chores and went on to inherit his father’s love of racing. So, at the age of 11, he started giving his father Henry professional guidance and consultation regarding horse training.
A number of people have offered their condolences to the family and kind remarks about Jack, including Trainer Jonjo O’Neill, Kerry County Councilor Michael Cahill, and Horse Racing Ireland CEO Suzanne Eade.
