ITA Irish Cup & National Championships 2016

ITA Irish Cup & National Championships 2016

The ITA Irish Cup & National Championships took place in the UL Arena, Co. Limerick on the 11th & 12th November. The tournament was the biggest ever ITA competition with almost 800 athletes competing in Sparring, Patterns, Special Technique and Power-Breaking.

As with all ITA competitions there was a high calibre of competition on display, and as the tournament formed part of the selection process for the 2017 European Championships, all sections where very highly contested. This was very much the case in the senior sparring sections, where members of the Irish female teams, who took Gold & Bronze at the recent ITF World Cup as well as the Gold-and-Silver winning male teams were competing, hoping to be selected for the next European campaign.The first Male sparring medal went to Thomas Fogarty in the -57kg section, while in the -63kg Section Ryan Shelley took Gold ahead of Luke McGrath. In the final of the -70kg Blackbelt division current World Champion Adam Shelley faced off with 2009-World-Champion Luke Woods, with Mr Shelley taking the Gold.
