Irish Open

The future of the Irish Open is safe -
until the Ryder Cup in 2006 at the
very least.

Classic links Portmarnock will host
the €2 million Nissan Irish Open
from July 24-27 next year - the week
after the British Open.

But the eleventh hour deal to save
the ´People´s Open´ has also saved
the blushes of both the government
and the European Tour.

With the Ryder Cup due to be played
here in Ireland in 2006, the loss of
the Irish Open would have been
hugely embarrassing blow.

´This is a happy and proud day for
Irish golf and the Irish Open,´ said
Ken Schofield the European Tour´s
Executive Director in Dublin

´The partnership with Ireland is more
solid than ever and we are looking
forward to the future of the Nissan
Irish Open and the next home Ryder
Cup match in Ireland in 2006.´
