Joseph Owens lived in Glenamaddy with his wife, who was born Annie M Tuohy. They had three children, Dick, Mary, and her twin Joseph (born February 4, 1912), who was known to one and all as Josie. The father died very young. Annie remarried, this time to a man named Doorly, and in 1922, the family bought a four-bay four-storey early 19th century house in Lower Dominick Street from Nora O’Donnell and moved to Galway. Annie was a busy woman, she opened a drapery shop where she designed clothes, made them and sold them in her shop, and she kept lodgers upstairs, all as she was rearing her children.

Willie Mullins was crowned leading trainer at the 2023 Cheltenham festival. It was his tenth time to take the award. Willie has trained 94 winners at the festival to date, and looks very likely to bring his total to over a century of winners next week. With 65 winners in the last decade, the Mullins domination shows no sign of abating, and it will be the shock of the season if he is not crowned leading trainer at next week’s festival. At a recent Cheltenham preview night, his stable jockey, Paul Townend, was asked for his “charity” bet of the week. His response gave a clear indication of the horses he views as banker material; not content with giving a single answer to the question, Paul suggested a treble comprising Lossiemouth, El Fabiolo and Galopin Des Champs. All three look bomb proof, but, as every punter knows, one of the three often lets you down.
