Our ‘ young’ men end the season on a high

“The Irish Men’s team reward for a good season was to return to the Silesian GP in Poland, the scene of much socialising in 2014.   Unfortunately with flights and hotels booked the event was cancelled due to problems with the ice pad.   Unable to obtain a berth at another European bonspiel at such a late stage we managed to secure a reserve entry to the Edinburgh International Gathering.   Held on the same weekend as the Irish Mixed playdowns we had to attend Murrayfield without our super-skip JJ Kenny who was busy doing his usual at Dumfries.   John Furey however did a superb skip’s job and together with team mates James Russell, Craig Whyte and Arran Cameron, we enjoyed three wins and a peel and less so two losses!  We were fortunate enough to play against Swiss, Scottish, Swedish and Canadian teams and placed mid table in the mid group of 28 teams.  An excellent no pressure, much socialising and enjoyable weekend was had to close the season.  Will now be taking break for a few months before Coach Sutherland calls us once again to arms at the Stirling Skins in July.  Happy Summer everyone!”
