Motorsport Ireland Weekend Round-up

Four times British Rally champion Keith Cronin, from Ballylickey in West Cork, headed a family 1-2 in yesterday’s Rathkeale House Hotel Circuit of Munster Rally, leading from start to finish as he beat his younger brother by almost two minutes over the nine stages, writes Richard Burke.

Keith, with regular co-driver Mikie Galvin, used the day to get more accustomed to his new Hyundai before the next cross-channel round as he mounts his defence of last year’s British series, while Daniel and his co-driver J J Cremin in their Fiesta were more than half a minute ahead of third placed Ed Synan and Tom Collins in an Impreza.
