Padraig Harrington leads the Irish Challenge at the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open at Ballyliffin GC, Co. Donegal.
The 46-year-old is one shot behind the leader on -4 after an excellent opening round in the north-west. Rory McIlroy also had a decent round as he begins Day 2 on -2 after a round of 70 although it could have been a much more impressive score with many birdie opportunities missed on the opening day.
Elsewhere, Paul Dunne (+1), Graeme McDowell (-1) and Shane Lowry (level par) will be hoping to have a better day today.
