Co Kilkenny Jockey wins Grand National at Aintree

Grand National winning jockey David Mullins says claiming victory onboard Rule The World was an “amazing” feeling.

The 19 year old from Goersbridge in Co Kilkenny guided the 33-to-1 shot in ahead of The Last Samuri after a tight finish at Aintree.

It was his first time to take part in the race which was also a maiden success for trainer Mouse Morris in the event.

The local Jockey says he’s thankful for getting the opportunity.
