St Pat's played over 45 minutes with 10 men but thoroughly deserved a share of the points at Richmond Park.
Monaghan's Conor Murphy gave the visitors a shock lead after 1 minute but Dean Kelly scored his second goal of season after 15 minutes to equalize for the Saints. Unfortunately he saw red just before half-time following a challenge on Stephen Maher.
In a hectic second half, both sides has chances to win the game, but Pat's will be the more disappointed having missed a penalty (Stephen O'Flynn) and also hitting the post (Greg Bolger).
