Mairead Martin with the spoils of victory at Lahinch

Kanturk's Mairead Martin cruised to an impressive five-stroke win in the Lahinch Scratch Trophy.

The 18-year-old laid the foundation for her win by making eight birdies in a seven-under-par 67 in the morning round to lead by six shots from County Louth's Deirdre Smith.

Smith showed the form that brought her the Royal County Down Scratch Salver with a best of the afternoon 70 but Martin shot a three-under 71 to secure a hugely impressive victory on 10-under 138.
