I have been on both sides of the fence by buying and selling through Goresbridge, and it goes to show that the Donohoe team are a very unique, professionally run, auctioneering outfit. This sale needs all our support for the sake of the Irish horse industry and the continued success of the Goresbridge brand. Whether you are buying or selling – be part of this uniqueness.”Donal Barnwell

I feel the combination of the two can be nothing but successful and look forward to attending as a buyer and a seller. We wish them the best of luck.” Paul Donovan, Sportsfield Horses
