It's being reported that golfing superstar Rory McIlroy will wed his American fiancee Erica Stoll on Saturday 22 April at Ashford Castle in Co. Mayo.
The five-star hotel, which last week claimed yet another award after it was named AA Hotel Of The Year for 2017, is sure to make headlines around the world when the pair tie the knot as some of the biggest names in golf visit for the event.
The Belfast Telegraph reports that McIlroy, 27, is "sparing no expense on his dream nuptials which will almost certainly see pop star pals such as Niall Horan from One Direction mingling with the golfer's circle of close friends from Northern Ireland".
It report adds that a phone call to the hotel about the possibility of booking a room for the weekend after next was greeted with a reply: "Sorry but we are fully booked." However, there was no confirmation from the hotel that it had been rented out by the couple, who have spent two New Year's Eves at the property.
