Mark Timlin scored twice, with Conan Byrne and Billy Dennehy also finding the net, as St Patrick's Athletic outclassed Finn Harps as they recorded a 4-0 SSE Airtricity League Premier Division victory at Richmond Park.
The win, in a game brought forward to facilitate St Patrick's Europa League involvement, sees Liam Buckley's fifth-placed Saints move to within a point of Shamrock Rovers and Derry City, though now with a game more played.
