Ireland, battered 6-1 by Germany last week, got their World Cup qualifying campaign back on track with a 4-1 victory at Faroe Islands on Tuesday.
The first half was a cagey affair with the home side comfortably dealing with the long-ball tactics of Giovanni Trapattoni's Irish side.
Left-back Marc Wilson put the visitors in front in the 47th minute after cutting in and unleashing a fierce right-foot shot that flew in after taking a touch off a defender.
Jon Walters made it 2-0 a few minutes later with a looping header before Arnbiorn Hansen rose highest to nod a goal back for the Faroes.
Ireland restored their two-goal lead when Pol Johannus Justinussen hooked a Walters cross into his own net after 73 minutes.
Centre-half Darren O'Dea then headed in a corner from Aiden McGeady in the 89th minute.
Ireland now have six points from three games while the Faroes remain bottom of Group C with zero points.
