A stunning overhead kick from Colin Healy was enough to see Cork City claim all three points against reigning champions St Pat's courtesy of 1-0 victory at Turner's Cross and move to within four points of league leaders Dundalk.
The hosts created the better chances overall but an excellent game was finely balanced throughout as both teams played some great football and went about their business with real intent.
Dan Murray forced a top class save from Brendan Clarke just before half-time, before Conan Byrne clattered the post mid-way through the second half.
However, with time running out, it was Healy who smashed his overhead effort to the back of the Pat's net to settle the fixture in City's favour.
