IRELAND: Co Tyrone Deaths

May 2017. Caledon, Co Tyrone:  Lady Gillespie, a horse trainer has died, aged 54 after a short illness. She leaves a husband and five children.

Born in Switzerland in 1962 into one of the UK’s most aristocratic families, Lady Jane was the daughter of the sixth Earl of Caledon and the Baroness de Graevenitz.

Educated at public school in England, Lady Jane was the sister of the seventh Earl of Caledon.

She spent a great deal of her life at the family’s 5,000-acre estate in Caledon, Co Tyrone, where she trained horses.

Lady Jane was also a successful racehorse owner and National Hunt trainer.

Friends of Lady Jane described her as a quiet, unassuming lady with a passion for everything equestrian – and who could be a very supportive friend.

She was married three times, and was mother to two sons and three daughters. She first married cameraman Rory Peck, who was killed in Moscow in 1993.

Her second marriage was to landowner Andrew Dobbs from Carrickfergus, whom she divorced in 1999.

She then married Armagh owner and breeder Dr Fitzroy Gillespie of Tynan, Co Armagh, in 2013.

Lady Jane hit the headlines in 2008 when she told the Daily Mail that she was having to leave the family estate at Caledon because her brother – the Seventh Earl of Caledon – had banned her from riding through his 250-acre deer park.

She moved her horses to stables at Castle Leslie in Co Monaghan.

She later returned to Northern Ireland.

Lady Jane is survived by her husband and children.
