Two trophies at 4N

Ireland players and supporters with their two trophies.

A huge thanks to everyone who made the journey south to Preston to represent Ireland at the annual Four Nations competition. Ireland beat England to secure the Turnbull Trophy and Scotland to retain the Marshall Millennium Trophy and were beaten by Wales to the Meikle Trophy by a shot.

An excellent weekend at the Flower Bowl Ice Rink, with its green ice, was hosted by the English Curling Association and our thanks go to them for looking after us so well.

A word of praise for Maria O’Neill, who was curling for Ireland for the first time and secured two wins to do her bit for her country – well done Maria! Also to Alison Barr, who had previously played for England in the Four Nations, coming over to the green side this time round and helping our cause alongside husband Ross.

Wales will be the 2020 Four Nations hosts – the time and the venue are still to be decided.
