Longford swimming star Darragh Greene.

After setting a new  Irish Senior record in winning the Men 100m Breaststroke on Wednesday evening, outstanding Longford athlete Darragh Greene struck Gold again on Day 2 of the Irish Open Swimming Championships at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin.

Darragh, a member of UCD Swimming Club, powered his way through the pool to finish first in the final of the Men 200m Breaststroke on Thursday evening, clocking 2:10.53 on his way to winning another National title.
