What a finale to the week and we will have lots more reaction to come. They will certainly be celebrating in Finland today and, of course, at Linna Golf, part of the European Tour Properties network where he has a close association.

With this win - Mikko Ilonen

Mikko Ilonen moves to over €5 million in European Tour Official Career Earnings with the most lucrative victory of his career at the Irish Open.

15:38

A fantastic final round display from Ilonen, who did most of the damage with that fantastic 64 on Thursday but from then on remained in complete control until taking that scenic route down the 72nd hole. Here to bring you all the reaction and highlights, Roddy Williams.

Ilonen makes his first bogey of the day, but won't care as he seals a fourth European Tour title with a 13 under total. Willett missed his birdie chance and finishes tied for third behind Edoardo Molinari, but both have the sizeable consolation of a place in the Open Championship at Hoylake. Matthew Baldwin also qualifies, with Kristoffer Broberg the unlucky man on 11 under to miss out based on his lower placing on The Official World Golf Ranking in comparison to the English pair.

MIKKO ILONEN WINS THE IRISH OPEN!

15:20

I thought for a moment Willett had holed a third iron of the week, but the Englishman looks well set for a birdie from three feet. Ilonen responds with a nice pitch to ten feet, so as long as he avoids the dreaded three-putt the Finn will become Irish Open champion.

15:18

Ilonen's third is a bump down the fairway, so three from there for the win unless Willett holes his pitch.
