In absence of solar activity, Co-rotating Interaction Regions (CIRs) are a prevailing source of energetic ions observed near 1 AU. The twin STEREO spacecraft launched in October 2006, together with near-Earth spatial observatories offer an excellent platform for multi-point studies of CIR. Time-shifting and back-mapping techniques allow the comparison of ion increases observed by different spacecraft at different times but associated to the same CIR. The analysis shows that CIR-associated ions frequently show significant differences, particularly at sub-MeV energies. We present several cases where these differences are linked to the presence of Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections (ICMEs) or small-scale interplanetary transients in the vicinity or embedded in the CIR. Evidences of the possible role of ICME-CIR interaction as sources of temporal variations in the CIR-associated ion increases are presented and discussed.
