Team Ireland ready for Euros

All the best to the Irish Team who depart for the European Championships in Slovenia on Wednesday April 18th 2012. To keep up to date with the team follow the Irish Taekwon-Do Team Facebook page

The ITA board of directors sanctioned financial support for the 33 ITA competitors travelling to the championships by covering the €100 entry fee for each competitor. Though ITA is government recognised we do not yet receive government funding, however this funding directly from the association is a step in the right direction. The ITA are very proud of the competitive achievements of it's members and are delighted to be in a position to offer this support. The board of directors are very aware of the financial burden that is assumed by a competitor when they are chosen to represent their country at European and World level and have the greatest of respect for the individual sacrifices and of course the family, club and community support that makes these trips possible.

All that remains is to wish everyone the very best of luck in Slovenia. You will, as always, do us proud. 

All the best also to the team coaches, umpires, manager and supporters travelling to the championships and thanks to the managers and director of coaching for all their work behind the scenes that often goes unnoticed. Special thanks also to Top Pro sports for sponsoring doboks for all new squad members.
