Irish Curling Association
vs
Ardrossan Castle C.C.

This annual fixture will take place at
Greenacres Curling Rink
on Sunday 10th January 2020
at 12.30 pm over 2 sheets of ice.

The ICA is looking for 8 curlers to play in this friendly annual fixture.

The game will be followed by tea/coffee and sandwiches.

We are looking for individual players to make up two teams to play this important fixture. If you are available please contact us.

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.
