The Staff and Members of Ataxia Ireland are deeply saddened by the news of Judy Windle’s untimely death.  As one of the first member organisations of GRDO (Genetic and Rare Disorder Organisation) we are conscious of the great work that she did and her commitment to all the organisations affiliated to GRDO. We recognise that her passing will be felt by all those who knew her, especially all her friends in the disability sector. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family.  May she rest in peace.
