Suzanne Corcoran made an eagle and seven bogeys in a six over 78 to take a two stroke lead into the final round of the Irish Senior Women's Open at Arklow.

She leads on nine over par from Donabate's Pat Doran with South Africa's Sonja Bland and Grange's Sheena McElroy just three behind.

Irish Senior Close champion Gertie McMullen is on four off the pace after a 77 and with poor weather forecast for the final round, the destiny of the title is still wide open.
