Kyne was the winner of an All Ireland title in youth boxing, but had told his father immediately afterwards that he wanted to be a jockey.
He was apprenticed to John Quinn, one of Britain's top trainers in 2007 by James Hetherton, a racehorse trainer and owner. Kyne died with young Scottish rider, Jan Wilson, in a suspected arson attack at the block of flats in which they were living in North Yorkshire on September 5. The burial took place at Lackagh Cemetery.
