OUT! Bowled. Chris Woakes to Tim Murtagh. Slower length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to. The slower ball gets through Murtagh and hits leg stump and brings this Test match to an end. It also brings Ireland's hopes of victory to an end. They were well in this game for the majority of it, at times they were probably on top. Jack Leach's 92 as nightwatchman looks a great effort looking at the scorecard now and turned out to be a match-winning knock. In the end the realities of Test cricket have come down on Ireland this morning like a ton of bricks. Woakes and Broad were excellent in conditions that were tailor-made for them and it took just 15.4 overs for them to pick up all ten Irish wickets. That's all from me at Lord's, next up for England it's Australia and the start of the Ashes.

OUT! Caught. Stuart Broad to Andy McBrine. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Root. Round the wicket, shape away, off the outside edge and pouched at first slip yet again by Joe Root. Four catches for Root and four wickets for Broad. England have simply been too good, amazing skill and control from Broad and Woakes and excellent catching to back them up.

OUT! Bowled. Stuart Broad to Mark Adair. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Broad follows up with a full ball that nips back in sharply through the gate and knocks back off stump. Adair was playing a big drive, Ireland maybe deciding now that attack is the best form of defence but not on this occasion.

SIX! Stuart Broad to Mark Adair. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Adair does take on the shot and nails it this time, the ball going all the way for six. Looking at the replay he had his eyes closed as he hit it!

OUT! L.B.W. Stuart Broad to Kevin O'Brien. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. That is stone dead. O'Brien likes to play from the crease, that ball nipped back and kept a bit low and thumped into his pads in front of middle and leg. Broad had begun celebrating straight away, just a glance back to confirm the finger was up. Thsi game is coming to a conclusion very quickly.

OUT! L.B.W. Chris Woakes to Gary Wilson. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Well Woakes is threatening with every delivery and he has two wickets in three balls. That looked very straight, England reviewed very quickly. The only question is whether the ball hit Wilson in line and if it did, is it by enough to overturn the original not out decision. Here comes Hawk-Eye, it's three reds and Ireland are reeling.

OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to James McCollum. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Root. Another drive and another wicket for England. The seam position was perfect from Woakes, a hint of shape in the air and the ball going away off the seam and finding the outside edge of another Irish bat. A regulation catch for Root at first slip and Ireland are four down.

OUT! Bowled. Chris Woakes to Paul Stirling. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Through the gate and Ireland are in trouble here. Very good from Woakes, great length, the ball crashing into the off bail and sending it flying. Stirling won't be too impressed with his shot, he was trying to drive a ball that really wasn't there for it and the big follow through with the bat opened up the path into the stumps for Woakes.

Edged and safely taken by the England captain at first slip. Well bowled by Broad, landing the ball in a dangerous area and there was just the right amount of movement.

APPEAL! Stuart Broad to James McCollum. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to silly point for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Again Broad appeals for LBW as the ball hits the back leg. Aleem Dar seems to pause for thought before giving the batsman not out. This one is closer than the last but Root reckons it's too high and again decides against a review. Umpire's call on height says Hawk-Eye.

OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to William Porterfield. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Too good from Chris Woakes, he finds the outside edge of the Irish skipper's bat and Bairstow takes a good low catch going to his left. It was tight to the off stump from Woakes forcing the left-hander to play. The angle across the batsman meant Porterfield got a tickle and Ireland lose their first wicket.

APPEAL! Stuart Broad to James McCollum. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Broad wants LBW but it's given not out, too high and legside too, missing the stumps so rightly no review from Joe Root despite Broad's enthusiasm.

OUT! Bowled. Stuart Thompson to Olly Stone. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed. The perfect start for Ireland, job done with the ball. Thompson is on the money straight away, the ball tailing back in through the gate and removing leg stump from the ground. Stone was trying to drive down the ground but the shape of the delivery was beautiful and it crept between bat and pad and continued on its journey towards the timbers undeterred. Conditions are heavy and overcast and batting is not going to be easy for Ireland. They are just 182 gritty runs away from a huge win, so near yet so far.

Stuart Thompson to Olly Stone. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot shoulders arms, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Wilson. Good morning and welcome back to Lord's where the stage is set for a thrilling day of Test cricket. If Ireland can wrap up the England innings quickly then they will be chasing less than 200 to record their first Test victory at just their third attempt. Here at Lord's, in England's own back yard, that would be quite a statement. It's not going to be easy though, only three men have reached 50 in this match and one of those was Jack Leach, England's left-arm spinner. Irrespective of the result England will have some questions to answer before the first ball of the Ashes. It might look like a weakened England side but with Archer and Wood unfit to play and doubts as to who should open the batting it's not as weakened as it looks. There is a little bit of rain around today but let's hope it stays away and we get a resumption to this very tight contest.

OUT! Caught. Stuart Thompson to Sam Curran. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by McCollum. Curran's stay at the crease comes to an end. He has given England a bit of hope with that cameo. Went after this short ball, tried to whack it out the park, but didn't get all of it. Went up very high, and McCollum snaps it up nicely. Ireland one wicket away from bowling England out for the second time in two days.

England looking absolutely horrendous with the bat now. It was 171-1 earlier on. Ireland need to capitalise on this chance. The lead is only at 126.

Not Root's most fluent knock at all. He has been very scratchy throughout. He walks down the pitch to Adair here, and pokes away from the body. A hint of movement off the surface, and the edge is taken. Smartly taken by Wilson behind the stumps this time.

Boyd Rankin to Moeen Ali. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to short leg for no runs, fielded by McCollum. A fascinating session of cricket, which belongs to Ireland. Roy and Leach started from where they left off in the morning, but once one fell, wickets came regularly. It says a lot about the batting when Jack Leach has been the best on show today. One for each of the Irish seamers so far, as well as a poor run out, has left England in a precarious position. The lead is only 87, so the hosts need something from their lower order to make things more comfortable. Ireland on top at the moment. A crucial evening to come!

FOUR! Mark Adair to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. A lazy, languid, drive from Moeen, and the ball runs off the edge through a vacant gully region. Ireland need to get their catchers in to the new batsman!

OUT! L.B.W. Mark Adair to Jonny Bairstow. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. England are wobbling again, and Ireland are back on top! Bairstow gets a pair. Adair nips it back into the keeper-batsman, the defence is beaten, and it crashes into the pads. Up goes the finger from the umpire, but a review is taken. Looks good on the replays, and HawkEye says it is clipping the top of the stumps.

OUT! Run Out. Andy McBrine to Joe Root. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket, fielded by O'Brien, by McBrine. Root has completely stuffed Denly up here. Clipped into the legside, and the England captain sets off for the single. Denly commits fully, but Root decides to send him back. The ball went straight to O'Brien, and it was too late by the time Denly turned back. Simple bit of fielding, and he is on his way. Ireland are gaining some momentum.

OUT! Caught. Tim Murtagh to Jack Leach. Seaming away length ball, middle stump no foot movement pushing, outside edge to second slip, by Adair. No mistake from Adair this time. Leach goes hard at the ball again, and the edge is gobbled up at second slip to send him on his way. A terrific innings from the nightwatchman. He goes off to a standing ovation. Murtagh has his sixth of the match.
