Eamon Tyrrell Referral Hearing
Eamon Tyrrell (Trainer) – Disqualification imposed by
British Horseracing Authority
The matter had been referred to the Referrals Committee by Denis Egan, Chief Executive of the Turf Club under the provisions of Rule 274(i) and had been adjourned following an initial hearing on 21st March 2011. It was further adjourned on 3rd April 2012 to allow the respondent to invoke Regulation R18 by way of challenge to the application to reciprocate, but required that particulars of that response be furnished. They gave leave to Andrew Coonan (solicitor acting on behalf of Eamon Tyrrell) to set out why he believed that the sanction should not apply in Ireland on the basis that the principles of natural justice were not complied with by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) in the procedure leading to the sanction.
Evidence was heard from Eamon Tyrrell. The Referrals Committee also considered written submissions from Andrew Coonan (on behalf of Eamon Tyrrell) and from the BHA.
Having considered the evidence and submissions, the Referrals Committee adjourned the case to 1st June 2012 to allow for a representative of the BHA to be present to respond to some of the issues raised.
The case was presented by Conal Boyce, Wilkinson & Price Solicitors, Naas, Co. Kildare. Eamon Tyrrell was represented by Andrew Coonan, Coonan Cawley Solicitors, Naas, Co. Kildare.
