Just moments after finishing 23rd overall in the 200m breaststroke heats at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre yesterday, Longford Olympian Darragh Greene told RTE Sport that he loved every minute of his Olympic experience.


The Newtownforbes man added, “Coming from Longford, has shown anyone from anywhere in Ireland can dream of going to the Olympics.”

Darragh certainly did his country proud and on Saturday, he also competed in the 100m Breaststroke heats at the Tokyo Olympics.

Derek Burnett is without doubt one of the most experienced Irish competitors to compete in the Olympic Games and he will be in action in Tokyo in the early hours of this Wednesday morning (July 28). 

Best of luck to Kenagh’s Derek Burnett, Ireland's most decorated shooter, who will be appearing at a record equalling fifth Olympics.

The Men’s Trap takes place in the Asaka Shooting Range from July 28-29.
