Mount Juliet in Thomastown has been unveiled as the host course for the 2020 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, with Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry the star attractions, after the news was first reported by the Belfast Telgraph on October 26. 

Four-time major winner, McIlroy, says the tournament will be his only one in Europe before the Open next summer.

The Jack Nicklaus design in Thomastown will host the event from May 28-31.

It will be the fourth Irish Open to be staged at Mount Juliet following memorable wins for Nick Faldo (1993), Bernhard Langer (1994) and Sam Torrance (1995).
