Development Squads

The next development squad will be held this coming Saturday, the 27th of June in Firhouse Club Dublin from 11-3pm. We know that Summer months can mean that numbers are lower in the clubs but please encourage as many of your members as possible to attend. All those thinking of putting themselves forward for National Team Selection should also be attending these sessions.

As always the team will focus on all the different aspects of competition.

Carl McGrath

This is a photo of Carl McGrath from Elite Taekwon-Do Academy, Loughshinny, who represented Ireland at the Worlds in Jesolo. Carl performed very creditably beating opponents from Kazakstan and Lebanon before losing to his Russian opponent. A head shot in the first round meant Carl was playing catch-up throughout and though he pressed hard he was unable to make up the deficit. Carl came straight back to the junior cert and after a well earned holiday he will resume training in advance of the European Championships in Scotland.
