Sligo Rovers' Airtricity Premier Division title aspirations took a battering at Richmond Park as St Pat's reignited their chase for a European place with a dramatic win on the banks of the Camac.
The visitors enjoyed most of the possession and the chances with Matthew Blinkhorn and sub Eoin Doyle in particular posing a serious threat to the home side.
However, Pat's netted the winner on 67 minutes when Conor Kenna's deflected header from a Stephen Bradley free beat Rovers goalkeeper Brendan Clarke.
