Jones on course for Strokeplay defence

Ireland's Helen Jones (Strabane) looks set to successfully defend her Irish Senior Women's Open Strokeplay title as she leads the field by four shots going into today's final round at Greenore.

Jones enjoyed a steady run of pars through the back nine before she birdied the last for a four-over-par 78.

Scotland's Alison Bartlett, Suzanne Corcoran (Portumna), Catherine Reilly (The Heath) and Minna Kaarnalahti from Finland are four back on 161.

Meanwhile, Ireland 'A' won the Nations Cup from Ireland 'B', with Wales and Canada following closely behind.
