Negotiations concluded late last week.

Around 270,000 people attended the three day event in Paris the last time it was held.

A study done by Tourism Ireland has suggested it will benefit the Irish economy to the tune of around €160m.

It is unknown at the moment how much the government will spend to host the tournament.

It comes on the back of Shane Lowry's sensational win at the Open, and while sources said that did not have an impact on the bid coming to Ireland it certainly builds excitement around the sport here.

It is expected the government will formally announce the hosting of the tournament after this afternoon's cabinet meeting, which is being held in Co Donegal for the first time since 2002.
