Cork native John Barry has partnered over 190 point-to-point winners on the Irish pointing circuit. The 2017/18 season not only saw him gain his 100th career success, but it was also his best to date courtesy of 27 winners and finishing in the top 5 on the riders table for the first time. This coming a decade after his first winner between the flags in November 2007 at Dromahane aboard the Michael Hourigan-trained Some Craic. Under rules, John has recorded over 30 winners, the first of which came at Sligo in May 2010.
