The Maynooth Taekwon-Do School re-opened for training in February 2003 under new Instructor Master Stephen Doyle 7th Degree. Maynooth is one of the older schools in the RITA being founded over 30 years ago by Mr Gerard McClellan 4th Degree.

Master. Stephen Doyle 7th Degree began his training in 1987 under Mr Michael Nevin in Old Bawn. After Mr Nevin moved from Old Bawn in 2000 Master Doyle became the Senior Instructor. His training continued under Grandmaster Robert Howard. He has represented Ireland on numerous occasions including the 1993 European Championships in Holland, the first Irish Team to win the 4 Nations in 1994 and Ireland v USA 1998. Master Doyle has attended many International Seminars under Grandmaster Rhee, Grandmaster Park, Grandmaster Leong Wai Meng, Senior Grandmaster Hwang and Senior Grandmaster Kim traveling throughtout Europe to participate. While attending a seminar in Hungary he was the first person to be graded to International Umpire "A" by Grandmaster Park Jong Soo. One of Master Doyle's most memorable moments came in 1992 when he got to train under the Founder Gen. Choi at a 5 day seminar in Dublin. Master Doyle won Gold in the 2010 & 2011 European Championships for 6th Dan Patterns.

Master Doyle was appointed the RITA National Coach in September 2005 and has helped train many World and European winners. He became the first Irish person to win the 4 Nations Trophy as both a competitor in 1994 and coach in 2013. Master Doyle also organised the first ever RITA Female International friendly in Ireland when the Irish Females beat a UKTA Female team in 2012. He has travelled all over Europe and as far as DPR Korea with the Irish Team.
