The Irish International Bonspiel took place on the weekend of 22/23rd February 2013
at Northwest Castle Hotel, Stranraer, Scotland.
This was the 16th annual bonspeil and as usual the North West Castle Hotel were excellent hosts for the event.
All teams enjoyed 4 games of curling which was scored using the schenkel system and split into high and low roads on the Sunday.
Everyone paid tribute to Jim and Kathie Nixon who have now retired from organising this Irish Weekend after many years. They were presented with a curling print and flowers by Bill and Janie Gray. Bill said: “On behalf of the ICA, I would like to thank Jim and Kathie for their tireless effort in making a success of our Irish International Bonspiel over the past number of years.”
