Cathal McCormack could not have wished for a better start to his riding career in point-to-points, with his first success coming on his first ride between the flags aboard Nigel Slevin's Mr Boss Man at Dowth Hall in October 2018.

A first track success followed in 2019 when Breezy Bell won Handicap Hurdle at Ballinrobe for Eddie Cawley.
