Katie and Ailsa
While Irish Ladies C League team members Jen Ward and Jacqui Barr were training in Scotland recently, skip Ailsa Anderson and vice-skip Katie Kerr managed to get in some training in New York.
Katie in action
Ailsa never travels far without her curling shoes and fortunately Katie’s Brooklyn based opposition were in need of a sub.
Although it was her first time playing arena ice outdoors, Ailsa reported that the ice was “interesting to say the least!”.

But a great game was had and big thanks to Curl NYC for allowing Ailsa to join in.
Tony Tierney has got a permanent job since his illness as the official ICA presenter of trophies!
Johnjo, Gillian, the Glittertree and….Tony!
He was in front of the camera again at Kinross at the weekend when handing over the prestigious Glittertree to the 2016 winners Johnjo and Gillian!
Well done Gillian and Johnjo.
Andrea liked their tree best of all so the ICA Glittertree 2016 is heading to Crossgates.
Thanks to all the members who took the time to enter this year and enjoy the rest of the festive season.
That controversial mixed team mascot decoration may just impress our judge this year…..
Will a doggie decoration sway this year’s judge?
Will this tree ‘Trump’ the opposition……
A serious contender from a senior competitor…..
Spreading festive cheer in Bridge of Weir……..
Here’s our first tree for 2016 – from the ‘Grandfather’ of Irish curling…….
We will have to concentrate on curling news very soon, so, as the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness – and curling – looms, here is one more late summer look backwards.
