Ireland will have two representatives on the Britain and Ireland team to play the United States in the Curtis Cup at Nairn in Scotland in June.

Leona Maguire from Slieve Russell and Stephanie Meadow from Royal Portrush, both of whom are in the top ten of the women's world amateur rankings, have been selected, while Leona's twin Lisa has been named first reserve.

Both of the Maguire twins played in the match two years ago when Britain and Ireland lost to the States in Massachussetts.

Meadow, who is on a university scholarship in the United States, will be making her debut.
