St Patrick's Athletic 3 - Waterford United 0

St. Patrick s Day celebrations began a little early at Richmond Park last night, as St. Patricks's Athletic continued their barnstorming start to the eircom League of Ireland season.

A brace from Anto Murphy and another from Joe Ndo were enough to see off Gareth Cronin's Waterford United and the Saints now boast no less than 11 goals in four competitive games this season.

And with the prodigal son Brian Kerr returning, the former Ireland manager was given a rapturous reception before kick-off, not to mention the financial investment that is on the way from property tycoon Garrett Kelleher, things could not be better around Inchicore at present.

Ndo opened the scoring after 24 minutes with a deflected strike from just outside the box and Murphy doubled the home sides advantage when he ran onto Keith Fahey s through-ball and finished with aplomb just after the half-hour.

The pair combined again for Pats third after 80 minutes, when Fahey s curling free-kick to the far post was met by the lanky winger.
So it is onwards and upwards for the Super Saints and who knows where the journey will end.
