Dundalk have got back to winning ways in emphatic style as the reigning League of Ireland champions hammered St Patrick's Athletic 4-0 at Richmond Park.

Dundalk were coming into the game on the back of a defeat to title rivals Cork City, while Pats had overcome an opening day setback against Galway United to record three wins on the bounce.

But Stephen O'Donnell put the away side in front after just nine minutes for the only goal of the first half.

And Stephen Kenny's side added three more in the second half as David McMillan, Daryl Horgan and Brian Gartland before the full-time whistle.
