The story of Irish judo began in 1952. It began in a mews building at the back of 12 Infirmary Road, just beside the Phoenix Park in Dublin. A few men, who had done a little judo in England came home, got together and decided to set up a judo club. Easier said than done! In reality all these men wanted to do was to continue to practice the judo that they had started to learn in England. Their first problem was to find premises and this they did. After much searching, they set up the first dojo in an attic at the rear of number 12 Infirmary Road, Dublin.
