Precession is related to the Ice Age in the sense that it helps propagate and is line with the Ice Age's theory about astronomy, especially pertaining to the earth's orbital forces and the rotation of the earth's axis.

Earths precession resulted in an ice age that ended about how many years ago?

In the last couple of million years, the Earth has experienced dozens of ice ages. The last one ended about 15,000 years ago. We don't know if they are related at all to the Earth's "precession", which is a 26,000-year-long "wobble" in the Earth's spin. There is no reason for precession to have any effect on Earth's climate, since the 'tilt' of the axis remains constant throughout the cycle of precession.
