Trailing 14-3 at half-time, Scotland stayed in the hunt with a Blair Kinghorn try cancelling out a Conor Murray touchdown off a maul.
A five-metre scrum, the last play of the half and Ireland itching for any kind of control and Ringrose not only set the platform, but also looped around Aki on the next phase, before sending Stockdale in for his and Ireland's second score.
The Irish Grand Slam-chasers top the table with three wins and two bonus points but with a trip to Twickenham still to come, Schmidt's team could yet be caught.
It was Joe Dunleavy's first 6 Nations start for his country, and the Letterkenny man put in a solid performance to help his team to victory. "Rory Best [Ireland's captain] has already spoken to the squad in the dressing-room to keep them focused", he said in the Irish Independent.

Blair Kinghorn's try did narrow the lead to 21-8 with a well-worked try in the 51st minute, but Ireland were simply more clinical and there was a sense of elation when a lineout move in the corner resulted in Cronin, nearly on his knees, going over.

Last year, Ireland blamed its bus arriving at Murrayfield 15 minutes late for losing to Scotland 27-22.
"The way things are going we're going to be disappointed if we don't win the grand slam with a bonus point". All eyes are now on the Stade de France. But there was a lot of energy and a lot of will from the players.
Ireland has only won the Grand Slam twice - in 1948 and 2009 (in the Brian O'Driscoll-Paul O'Connell era). Against the run of play, the Scots took the first points from a Greig Laidlaw penalty.
Take this on Ireland's gain-line power against Wales, and whether they might seek to adopt the same tactics against Scotland: "It's ironic you say that, because I'd probably challenge people to do a little bit more homework".
