St Pat's were involved in another thrilling game in front of the cameras as they came from behind to secure a draw against the league leaders.
The Saints fell behind in unusual circumstances, with Kenny Browne heading into his own goal following a clearance from Brendan Clarke after 18 minutes.
It was the visiting side who were much the better side for the 90 minutes and had a number of chances to equalize before the half-time interval.
Liam Buckley replaced Jake Kelly with Dean Kelly at half-time and introduced Sean O'Connor after 59 minutes which proved to be a master stroke.
It was O'Connor who scored the equalising goal, heading home a John Russell cross 12 minutes later.
The Saints had a great chance to secure all three points, but missed their second penalty of the season with only minutes remaining.
Next up is a trip to the Brandywell but the Saints will be full of confidence following another fine footballing display.
