Bohemians FC have maintained their 100% record since the resumption of Irish soccer last month.
They've also set up a title race that not many would have predicted when the SSE Airtricity Premier Division ground to a half due to the spread of Covid-19 back in March.
Anthony Breslin and Andre Wright found the back of the net for Keith Long's side in the 16th and 24th minute to beat St. Pat's 2-0 at Dalymount Park on Saturday afternoon.
Bohs looked well organised and efficient from the off and although St. Pat's did enjoy more possession in the second half they failed to create anything and the first-half goals were enough for the hosts.
The result also marked an impressive third clean sheet in four games for Gypsies goalkeeper Stephen McGuinness.

Just two points now separate Bohs and leaders Shamrock Rovers at the top of the table after the Hoops dropped points against Shelbourne on Friday night.
The sides are set to meet at Tallaght Stadium next month in what could be a winner takes all showdown.
