  1. Hi Louise,

    I am in the process of making a formal proposal to the Minister of Sport in Ireland for a National Rink, focused on Curling.

    I just thought I would let you know as I have no contact with Curling Ireland and so have no one to tell. I have sent Robin a facebook message leaving my number but I am not sure how often he uses his account.

    If you have viewing figures of Curling from the BBC for the Winter Olympics from this year and other years can you pass them on.

    Thanks in advance


  2. Seriously considering booking a crossing for the session tomorrow morning. Any idea how long they run for as boat doesn’t actually get in to cairnryan until 9.50am?

    I believe you have spoken to Gail Munro about the Try Curling session at Stranraer Ice Rink tomorrow. PJ Wilson, the ICA President, and myself will look into the ice rink to say hello.
