Irish impact in the Ryder Cup
Darren Clarke waves to the crowds (left). And he poses with team-mates Paul McGinley and Padraig Harrington
Another chapter in Ireland's rich Ryder Cup heritage was written as Europe beat the USA 18-9 at the K Club.

The Emerald Isle has supplied an array of heroes over the years, from the against-the-odds victories of Eamonn Darcy and Christy O'Connor Jnr to the match-winning putts of Philip Walton and Paul McGinley.

An emotional Darren Clarke maintained the tradition in Kildare where he joined team-mates McGinley and Padraig Harrington.

BBC Sport charts the impact from both sides of the Irish border on the Ryder Cup down the years.
