Paul Fitzpatrick

TOP seed Paul Brady booked his place in the final of the World Championships for the fourth time in a row last night and declared: "I'm more motivated than ever".

The Cavan man defeated his clubmate Michael Finnegan with another sublime display in straight games in front of 3,000 spectators at CityWest.

"I'm coming near the end now, this is my last Worlds and I am more motivated than ever for that reason," said the 33-year-old, who won the title at the triennial event in 2003, '06 and '09.

Meanwhile, it will be an all-Antrim Ladies Open singles final after Fiona Shannon and Aisling Reilly advanced to tonight's decider.

In the U-23 grade, Limerick senior footballer Seamus O'Carroll reached the semi-final where he will face Clare's Diarmuid Nash, with Mayo's Stephen Cooney facing Tyrone U-21 footballer Caolan Daly in the other last-four clash.
