Millstreet Taekwondo Club members travelled to Athlone last weekend to take grading exams which would promote them to the next level. After almost six hours of training and examination, six fantastic young Duhallow people successfully passed. So Millstreet Taekwondo Club now has five new First Degree Black Belts in Sliabh O’Connor, Rachel Gaffney, Triona Desmond, Michael Thornton and Sean O’Keeffe. Promoted to 2nd degree was Joshua O’Sullivan. So many hours of training paid off. Well done to everyone.
