John Nallen

Season 1, Ep. 1
The Inside Tipp Podcast interviews interesting Tipperary people with great stories that showcase the beauty and unspoilt uniqueness of Tipperary from Lough Derg in the north down to the Suir Valley in the south.Our first Tipperary guest is John Nallen who went viral all over the racing world when a video clip showed his raw passion when celebrating as Minella Times won the Aintree Grand National and the horse was ridden into the history books by Tipperary women Rachel Blackmore. This meant a unique double for Minella Racing as Minella Indo had won the Cheltenham Gold Cup just a few weeks before.Tipperary is rightly famous for its love of horse racing and racing heritage with Tipperary steeped in racing history. We have a great example of that heritage and skill in John Nallen from Clonmel, Co Tipperary. John shares why he feels Tipperary has created some of the best horses and trainers in the world and why Tipperary is such a magical destination for horse racing fans. John talks on the podcast about this special year and how he goes about picking and training champion horses.  John also shares his favourite hidden gems in Tipperary including the lost village of Glenary in the Comeragh mountains and the stunning scenic drive from Clonmel through Ardfinnan and Clogheen all the way up to the Vee in the Knockmealdown mountains. A roadtrip where you go past the most wonderful pink rhododendrons that fill the mountain sides until you get to the Vee's panoramic viewing point where you can the Galtees, Knockmealdowns, Comeraghs and Slievenamon.
