Yesterday the 28th May, we said goodbye to ‘Our Julia’ as the Aspire Graduate Programme funded by Sport Ireland and Dormant Account funding came to an end. It has been an amazingly quick year during which time Julia worked tirelessly to learn about the business side of the sport of judo, support the WIS administration, assist at national events and take up the mantle of managing our social media presence in the last few months as part of the Aspire Programme.

Julia will be missed in the IJA Office and we wish her the very best for the future ahead.
