The Ryder Cup looks set to come to Ireland in 2026, with the government to approve funding to host the golf tournament this afternoon.

Talks have been ongoing since last September when senior figures from the European Tour approached the Irish Government to gauge the level of interest in hosting the biennial match between the United States and Europe.

Adare Manor will host the 2026 Ryder Cup, it has been confirmed.

Lowry said his "main goal" is making his Ryder Cup debut in Padraig Harrington's team to take on the Americans at Whistling Straits next year.

Pádraig Harrington, the 2020 Ryder Cup captain, was consulted on the design of Adare Manor.

"Shane's victory is one of many great achievements by Irish golfers, not just in Major Championships but also in The Ryder Cup. Today's announcement is extremely humbling for all of us and my heartfelt thanks and gratitude go out to all of those who have played their part in the Adare Manor story so far".

It will be the first time in 20-years that the prestigious tournament will have been played on Irish soil.

Twitter beats revenue expectations, sees rise in daily users viewing ads
Dorsey, one of the founders of Twitter, returned as CEO in 2015 with the service sputtering and looking at a potential sale. Twitter reported that revenue grew by 18% year-over-year, driven by stronger user growth and higher advertising revenue .

The Ryder Cup will return to Ireland in 2026 bringing hundreds of thousands of visitors an extra €100m economic boost to the country.

Guy Kinnings, the European Ryder Cup director, insisted Lowry's Open victory only solidified the decision to take the competition back to Ireland.

Commenting about the tour, Mr Ross added: "The event has a large global profile with a potential to be broadcast to 375 million homes, 5,000 hours of broadcasting on 50 different channels; 2,000 journalists will attend; thousands of articles about the Ryder Cup were published in 2018 alone". It would also be shown to over 370 million home across the world.

Irish racehorse owner JP McManus bought Adare Manor in December 2014, and revamped the entire resort at a cost of a reported 70million Euro.

"Equally in receipt of our appreciation are Adare Manor owners JP and Noreen McManus and their entire team at the magnificent County Limerick venue".

Adare Manor is already familiar to some of the world's best players.
