Dear ITF Members!
It is with great dismay and deep regret that we learnt today that Master Patrick O’Rourke (8th Dan) and member of the Irish Taekwon-Do Association has started his final journey.
Our thoughts are with him and his family, to whom we wish much strength to overcome this difficult time.
Master O’Rourke will always be dearly remembered. May he rest in peace.
For the ITF Board of Directors
