Irish Open 2014 - Cork - 19th to 22nd June
Rory McIlroy has expressed his delight at the official confirmation that the 2014 Irish Open will return to Cork for the first time in 12 years.
“The country’s National Open should be moved around to give everyone an opportunity to see the event, and it also gives us the chance to show the world just how many amazing courses there are in Ireland.'
Fota Island will be an exciting venue for the Irish Open, and exactly the kind of place to showcase what Ireland has to offer as a golf destination.
The presence of The European Tour’s new generation of stars, led by Rory McIlroy, will deliver a significant boost to the region of Cork, and the World Number Six and double Major Champion is looking forward to the challenge of Fota Island’s Deerpark Course from June 19-22 2014.
“The staging of the 2014 Irish Open in Fota Island will see significant short term and longer term tangible benefits to the city from the event itself and the strategic marketing messaging that will present Cork throughout the world as a place to visit through our association with the event.'
