PAST, present and future members all turned out at the Barbican to help Drogheda School of Karate celebrate 45 great years.

Hundreds upon hundreds of photographs mapped the glory years of the club, from humble beginnings in 1969, to the present day.

The club has produced some major stars down the years on the European and world stage, with Phil Nulty, amongst others, a continous driving force and inspiration.

'A lot of the early pictures appeared in the Drogheda Independent, courtesy of Eugene Murphy and Bob O'Malley,' Phil explained.

The exhibition included names like Sean Collins and Dom Wilton in their early days in the club and others who went on to be household names in the sport in the region, from Mandy Seery, David Moran and Anita Cowley, to numerous other champions.

The likes of Coca-Cola have backed the club many times down the years and their support is always recognised.
