Sport in Brief: Motorsport - Rabbitt collects Leinster Trophy


Cork's Catriona Casey capped off a sensational 2013 season when she added the M Donnelly 60x30 Ladies Singles Championship to her 'small alley' and doubles crowns.

Mallow star Casey (19), was always on top against Kerry's Maria Daly and after racing into a 15-6 lead, she closed out the opener. A three-wall serve was causing the experienced Daly huge trouble and Casey wrapped up the second game on a 21-9 score.

BURT won their third Donegal SHC in a row, their 34th in all, after staving off a stirring second-half comeback by Setanta in a 3-13 to 2-14 win in Letterkenny on Saturday.

Burt led by 10 points at the break as first-half goals by Stephen Gillespie, Niall Campbell and Stephen Boyle gave them a 3-9 to 0-8 advantage. Inspired by Kevin Campbell, who ended with 2-10 to his name, Setanta hit back, but determined Burt withstood the challenge, with Niall Campbell hitting late points to seal their glory.
