When he retired from riding, he started training and, with his son Paul Carberry as jockey, he won the 1998 Irish Grand National with BobbyJo. He also won the 1999 Grand National, which was remarkable for there having been a 24-year link between the two victories - Tommy Carberry, jockey and trainer. His children, Phillip and Nina are also successful jockeys. Carberry died on 12 July 2017, aged 75.
