Jonathan Trott returned from injury to hit 69 in England's 11-run win over Ireland in a rain-affected one-day international on Thursday.
After missing England's last two test victories over India, Trott opened the batting at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground alongside Craig Kieswetter and top scored in 201-8 from 42 overs.
Jade Dernbach then took 3-30 and conceded just 7 from a tight final over as England restricted Ireland to 117-8 from 23 overs, narrowly avoiding a repeat of its embarrassing three-wicket defeat at this year's World Cup.
Eoin Morgan captained England against his home country and was the only other visiting batsman to score heavily, hitting 59 from 65 balls.
Ireland's Kevin O'Brien struck 26 from 25.
