It was more a Sunday evening stroll than a march, but the Saints are back to the top of the table either way with a comfortable win in Inchicore.
John McDonnell's men have taken full advantage of Bohemians' ongoing Intertoto leave of absence amassing seven points from a possible nine while the Gypsies have been on their travels.
They had to come from behind after Stuart Malcolm's surprise sixth minute opener but Harp's naivety in defence after that showed why there is now 23 points between these sides in the table.
