CORK, Ireland -- Mikko Ilonen opened up a two-stroke lead at the Irish Open at the end of the second round as Rory McIlroy failed to make the cut by one shot.

Ilonen added a 3-under 68 to his opening round course record of 64 to move to 10 under on the Fota Island Resort course.

The 34-year old Finn birdied his opening hole but then stalled with eight straight pars ahead of an inward half that included four birdies.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell (66), England's Robert Rock (66) and Frenchman Romain Wattel (65) share second place on 8 under.

McIlroy's second round 68 was a mix of a 10th hole eagle, six birdies and a double bogey at No. 4.
