In a recent collaboration with the All England Judo Federation, the president Joe Norman presented us with this lovely cup for use at one of our events or presentations. We think its only fit that we use this cup to further celebrate our special friendship games event of last weekend. So we have decided to award this cup to the club (apart from the host club) who were highest on the medal table. It gives us great pleasure to make this award to Cork School of Judo who achieved the fantastic result of 6 Gold and 7 Silver medal wins Congratulations to Steve Cole,David Springall, Aongus Synnott, Liam Donohue and their team on a job well done.

Dublin Open Judo Championships 2018

Wow, what a day for the club. Between the senior and junior squad, they came away with 5 gold – 4 silver and 6 bronze medals. All the club are extremely proud of your achievements and the way you conducted yourselves throughout the tournament. A huge thank you also goes to the parents who gave up their precious lie in bed to support the team.


All members of the club wish to offer their deepest sympathies to Artur and all his family on the passing of his father.

At long last

Congratulations to Lee and Donal on their promotion to blue belt.

Both players put a lot of time and effort in learning the katas. A very big pat on the back also goes to Liam Donohue who is the clubs grading coach who gave up a huge amount of his time helping the boys.

Well Done Girls

Congratulations to Anna & Amy who competed on behalf of Judo Ireland’s Junior national squad last week in England. We are all very proud of you both, and hope your success will inspire more members of this club to compete in the near future.
