France's Six Nations campaign remains on track after their 33-10 win over Ireland at the Stade de France in Paris.
Morgan Parra kicked a penalty and tries by William Servat and Yannick Jauzion, both converted by Parra, helped the French to a 17-3 lead at half-time.
The French celebrated with a lap of honour and now look like favourites to win this year's Championship.
The tournament continues Sunday with England taking on Italy at 2.30pm.
France's win put an end to Ireland's 12-match unbeaten run, which included victory over world champions South Africa.
