The ITA Board of Directors would like to wish the ITF Ireland National Team the very best as they depart on Tuesday April 22nd for the Euros in Riccione, Italy. It is 10 years since the Irish Team travelled to the same venue for the junior world championships in 2004 and we are very pleased to say that in that decade Irish Taekwon-Do has continued to make such positive strides forward and the success of our National Association and the National Team has grown year on year. We wish our athletes, coaches, umpires, supporters and officials all the very best for the campaign ahead.
