Harrington first Irishman in 60 years to win Open…

Congratulations to Padraig Harrington for lifting the British Open Golf trophy Claret Jug this evening after a nail biting one shot victory in a four-hole play-off with Sergio Garcia. Holywood’s Rory McIlroy was the top amateur, finishing on five over and as such takes the Silver Medal. Congrats to Rory and family!!
