St Pat's moved one point clear of Bohemians at the top of the table after this keenly contested Good Friday encounter at Richmond Park.
The Saints remain unbeaten after five games and have yet to concede a goal.
Vinny Faherty, Alex Williams and Ryan Guy all had chances of varying quality for Pat's but couldn't beat former Saint Brendan Clarke in the Fingal goal.
