Carton House set to host Irish Open
The Irish Open looks set to be played on the Montgomerie Course at Carton House next year - delaying its return to a links venue.
Conor Mallaghan, the executive director of the 36-hole Maynooth complex, confirmed on Friday: "We are talking to the European Tour but there is nothing agreed and I wouldn’t expect there to be an announcement tomorrow. We are interested. We hosted the event in 2005 and 2006 and we would be well positioned to do it.”
