DANIELLE Deveney has been appointed membership coordinator of the Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association.

A familiar face to many breeders from her time working with Goffs and TRI Equestrian, Deveney is starting immediately in the role and will be present at the upcoming yearling sales at both Tattersalls Ireland and Goffs.

ITBA chief executive Shane O’Dwyer said: “We are delighted to welcome Danielle to the team. She will be a great addition to the ITBA. Danielle brings with her a wide range of industry knowledge and experience’.”

Danielle will work alongside Una Tormey, who was recently appointed operations manager for the ITBA.
