Will I be snapping up Rory's €2.5m mansion? No way, reveals ex Holly

RORY McIlroy's ex has no wish to buy the golfer's Northern Irish home which is on the market for a cool €2.5m.

Holly Sweeney lived in the five-bed mansion with the golf champ when the two were a couple. But model Holly said that she has no desire to return to the Moneyreagh, Co Down, plush pad.

"God no," she told the Herald.

"I've lived there. I have no need to do it again."

Rory has ditched the mansion because he only spends a few weeks a year at home.

The golfer (23) has booked a room at his parents' house for the few occasions that he stays in Holywood, Co Down.

He is currently renting a home at Florida's West Palm Beach where a lot of the US golfers are based.

His 560sqm house, which was built in 2006, has already captured the eye of international buyers.

The mansion includes a mini golf course and driving range, tennis court and five-a-side football pitch.

Earlier this year, Holly put her own apartment on the market so that she could buy a house.

But the former Ulster Rockettes cheerleader said that despite significant interest in the €800,000 apartment in Belfast's iconic The Boat building, it remains unsold.

"I haven't sold it yet but there are a few people renting it," she said.

Holly (21) said that the sale of her home was a "stepping stone" to independence.
