Sporting achievements at IADT
Team IADT won the Robert Eustace Shield Cup Final by beating a strong Drogheda team 3 – 0. The final match was played as part of the national cup final series in Limerick. Two expertly taken penalties by ‘man of the match’, Cormac Herlihy, and a superb team goal, finished off by Daibhid Corish helped IADT to victory. Drogheda could find no way past our rock solid defence which was expertly marshalled by Aidan Quinn (goal keeper).
The hard-working management team of Derek McDonald, Kieran O’Neill and Seb Dungan were delighted to help IADT to a fourth national title in ten years. Congratulations to all involved in a great campaign.
Congratulations to Prince Bosco Hakiza, a Year 3 Entrepreneurship student, on winning IADT's first ever gold medal at the Taekwondo Intervarsity Championships.

The team was expertly managed by Paul H. Higgins who is also a Year 3 Entrepreneurship student.
