St Patrick's Athletic and Derry City took a point each from a highly entertaining match before a crowd of 1,236 at a wet Richmond Park in Inchicore.
Derry took the lead on the half hour when Stephen McLoughlin knocked the ball past Gary Rogers and into the net off the upright.
Danny North put Pat's back on level terms on the stroke of half time with a neat shot past Ger Doherty.
