Royal County Down set to host 2015 Irish Open

Royal County Down is set to host the 2015 Irish Open, three years after Royal Portrush successfully staged the European Tour event.

It will be the first time in 75 years that the famous Newcastle links has played host to an Irish Open.

The Northern Ireland Executive supplied funding in the region of £1.5m in support of the 2012 tournament and a similar investment will be required this time round.
