The Irish Stock Exchange is understood to have agreed a sale to Euronext, which operates the main Paris exchange.

The Irish exchange put itself up for sale earlier this year, and is thought to have commanded a price of around €100m.

The sale means a windfall for the Irish stockbroking firms that own the more than 200 year old Dublin institution - Davy, Fexco owned Goodbody Stockbrokers, Investec, Cantor Fitzgerald and Campbell O’Connor.
