Local Girls to Take Part in Taekwondo World Champs in Dublin!

16 Aug 2017

October will see over 1000 taekwondo athletes come to Ireland to compete at the ITF Taekwon-do World Championships. 2017 will be the first year Ireland has held such a prestigious taekwondo event. 

Local girls, Rebecca Mooney and Ellen Ince (L to R in photo) are multiple medal winners at both World and European level and have high hopes of achieving medals at this level for the first time on home soil. The 2 athletes were spotted recently on our sunny seafront in Clontarf as they got promotional photos taken for the event. The pick of their achievements to date includes a fantastic 7 World Gold medals for Ellen Ince (nearest camera) and 5 European Gold for Rebecca Mooney who is still a junior and the current 2017 European Champion in her division. 

Further details about the World Championships can be found at www.taekwondo.ie. You can also support these two athletes by purchasing tickets for the event on www.eventbrite.co.uk. This is a fantastic opportunity to see the best in the World competing here in Ireland. An event not to be missed. Good luck to team Ireland in the preparation for the event.
