Favourite ISSC memory:  The trip to Boston last year for the North American championship.  The weekend had it all.  Between seeing Mark Turner and the boys covered head to toe in black s**t when the fire alarm and sprinklers were “accidentally” set off in their room in the hotel to being on the winning hurling team and then watching our footballers winning their championship.  To top it all off, it was one of the best sessions I’ve ever been on inside in the Littlest Bar in downtown Boston.  Also have to squeeze in……….  to CHINAAAAAAAA.
