In desperately hard conditions, Lowry's one-over par final round was still more than enough as he finished on 15-under for the tournament to claim the Claret Jug. "I watched Paddy win his two Opens", he said.
"I'm ready to go most of the time", he said. Look at the names on it.
"I was just happy with the way I hung in there". I was so calm coming down the last, I can not believe it.
And thousands who filled these links off the North Atlantic could sense it when Lowry, after his fourth bogey in seven holes, rolled in an 8-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole to stretch his lead to six shots over Tommy Fleetwood.
Fleetwood knew the game was up when he drove into a bunker at the par-4 14th hole. Fleetwood got within three strokes after the first hole but never got any closer, finishing with a 3-over 74.
No one did. Lowry did his part, shooting a 1-over 72, a terrific score given the pressure of holding the lead and the intense weather that kicked in mid-round.
Padraig Harrington was the victor in both 2008 and 2009 while Rory McIlroy, from Northern Ireland, was an Open victor in 2014.
'Every time I go around to Padraig Harrington's house, he's got the Claret Jug on the kitchen table, ' said Lowry.
'My God, the day was just incredible and I can't thank them all enough, ' said Lowry. "I'm very lucky to make the money I do and provide the life for my family that I do through golf".
Tony Finau was the only player who managed even par from the final 20 players who teed off.
World number one Brooks Koepka was hoping for the wind to blow Lowry off course, but it was his chances that were washed away early on.
Yet this victory, the first in a major with a margin of five or more strokes since Rory McIlroy's U.S. Open triumph at Congressional in 2011, was just reward for four days of sublime golf played with the backing of a vociferous crowd desperate for an Irish victor on Irish soil.
Koepka battled back with an eagle at the fifth, but he narrowly missed out on becoming the first man to finish in the top three at all four majors in a calendar year in a tie for fourth alongside Lee Westwood on six-under.
Three dropped shots between the eighth and 11th did little damage, with Fleetwood also dropping shots in the damp conditions.
"Props to Shane, he played unbelievable golf".
His success owed much to a fantastic eight-under 63 on Saturday when the glorious conditions were in stark contrast to the heavy downpours and high winds that greeted the leaders the following day.
Scotland's Bob MacIntyre, in his first Open Championship, Englishmen Tyrrell Hatton and Danny Willett and America's Ricky Fowler finished on five-under for a share of sixth.
However, J.B. Holmes, who led at the halfway stage with Lowry and started the day in third, endured a horrendous day as the American shot a 16-over 87 to tumble down to 67th.
