This friendly annual event was revived by the ICA in 1994 but was first played in 1861. Originally we hoped to play it alternating between Irish and Scottish ice rinks, however we cannot provide ice time in Ireland at the moment.
The Trophy is the Belfast Medal hanging in a wooden curling stone. The medal was originally played for between Belfast Union and RCCC.
The venue this year was Greenacres Ice Rink, Scotland, on Tuesday 1st April 2014, followed by tea, coffee and sandwiches.
The competition is two teams from each club who play a single 8 end game each and the aggregate score across the two rinks determines the winner. This year the trophy was retained by Ardrossan with an aggregate score of 19 stones to 9.
Thanks to the ICA’s two teams of
John Furey, Louise Kerr, Arran Cameron, Yvonne Chalmers
PJ Wilson, Alan Mitchell, Clare McCormick and Margarita Sweeny-Baird
