Congratulations to all those who passed their gradings at the IIC in Paris today, in particular a huge well done to Master Christy Fagan (7th degree) and Master Gerry Martin (8th degree).
The members of this association are extremely proud of these masters, both of whom were on the team that won team gold at the ITF world championships in 1981, and have continued to contribute to the development of the art in Ireland ever since.
