Dear Members,

As you are aware, the Charity has been going through a difficult period recently. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing nature of the issues, we are not at liberty to discuss this.

We are endeavouring to return to a full and more member-focused organisation to assist those people with ataxia within our community, and appreciate your patience in this matter.

If you have any recommendations as to how our organisation might evolve in the future, please let us know by emailing or contacting a member of the Board, Conor O’Riain on 087 124 6322.

We are aiming to provide a full and transparent account of the current situation in the shortest possible timescale, and, again, we would greatly appreciate your patience in this matter.


Ataxia Ireland Board

Due to a substantial reduction in staff numbers, the Ataxia Ireland office has been forced to move to a 4 day week (Monday to Thursday) for the immediate future. However, in the event that you need to contact the Charity on Fridays, please ring our Information line on 087 7541791.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we will of course endeavour to provide the same level of service over 4 days.

The Ataxia Ireland Team


Ataxia Ireland CLG has decided to close the Monthly Lottery from the end of January 2018.

Your contribution to the charity through this fundraising medium has been much appreciated and we thank you for your support in the past.

All those with a balance on their account at the end of January have been contacted and will be sent a refund in due course by cheque.
