Paul Dunne is a European Tour Champion for the first time.
A stunning final round of 61 saw the Wicklow man finish the British Masters on 20 under par, three shots clear of nearest challenger Rory McIlroy.
Dunne, who held a share of the lead heading into the final round of the 2015 Open, and lost the Trophee Hassan in a playoff earlier in the season, is delighted to have finally made the breakthrough...
Three Irishmen finished in the top 10, with Shane Lowry grabbing 7th place on 13 under.
Graeme McDowell was back on 5 under par.
