Ireland closed the gap on Bangladesh in the Reliance Mobile ICC ODI Rankings table after completing a comprehensive 2-0 series victory over the Netherlands.
A disappointing Dutch batting display saw it dismissed for just 125 all out, with Johnston, Jones and Mooney all taking two wickets.
In reply, Paul Stirling celebrated his nomination for two awards at the LG ICC Awards 2010 by smashing a 28-ball half century, including four sixes in one over off Adeel Raja, before he eventually fell for 62.
Gary Wilson (48 not out) then guided his side to victory with 29.3 overs still remaining.
