Result: Saints 2 - Cork City 3

Ten-man Cork City's title defence started with a dramatic victory before a large crowd in the Richmond Park rain.

Goals from Barry McNamee and Graham Cummins had the champions in apparent control but the latter was sent off before Ian Bermingham and Conan Byrne helped restore parity - all of this in the opening 46 minutes.

Pat's looked for a late winner but substitute Jake Keegan had his shot bravely blocked by Shane Griffin before Kieran Sadlier's corner-kick seemed to go all the way in with eight minutes left.
