The history of the tournament goes all the way back to 1927, when Scotsman George Duncan won the inaugural contest. Aside
from taking a five-year break during World War II, the competition continued until 1950, when financial problems resulted
in its cancellation.However, a rise in popularity of the sport resulted in its return in 1975 and since then it's gone from
strength to strength, growing its attendance numbers and attracting the world's top players. With the contest moving around
the Emerald Isle's top courses, each year's tournament offers a fresh challenge, meaning spectators never quite know what's
about to unfold.
Fittingly, an Irishman holds the record for the most wins - '70s star Christy O'Connor Snr - while Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard
Langer, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballestros have all tasted victory in the tournament down the years. Meanwhile, more recent years
have seen the likes of Padraig Harrington and Jamie Donaldson come out on top. With Carton House in Kildare selected to host
