Brian Lawless began his career aboard family horses trained by his father Ger and owned by both Brian and his brother Seán. Delgany Star gave him his first ride at Borris House in December 2016, and by March 2017 it was Delgany Lass who gave him his first winner at Moira. The 2017/18 season saw an expanded group of handlers call upon his services, including Donnchadh Doyle, John Nallen, James Lambe and William Durkan. Lawless' father runs Ballydonagh Stables, which among other things, has trained stunt riders for hit TV shows such as Into The Badlands and Vikings.
