Shamrock Rovers demolished St Patrick's Athletic to give their season a much-needed boost and close the gap on their Dublin foes to four points, with Lee Grace, Ronan Finn and Sam Bone among the goals.
After going ahead, in front of over 3,000 fans at Tallaght Stadium, Stephen Bradley's men called the shots on a beautiful evening, with most of the Saints' in-form players nullified. It was a performance that advertised how good the inconsistent hosts are when they click.
Pat's were forced into a late change, keeper Barry Murphy unavailable as his partner was in labour, and Tyson Farago came into nets.
