I would be very wary of applying too much weedkiller there as it stands now. .
I have removed large ivy but not as big as yours apparently.
I would try to reduce as much as possible. Get a decent sharp saw and work back as far as ??ou can. Ivy wood is not too difficult. Get it down to as far as you can then on the cut surfaces gouge out grooves or hollows and paint with SBK brushwood killer. Hopefully by summer's end ??ou will have killed it. If not cut afresh and repeat. By next spring you should be able to break away much or all of the remaining ivy. In my experience ivy roots are not too deep rooted
