Nicole Turner will now focus on her specialist event, the 50m butterfly, after this morning's seventh place finish in the 100m breaststroke (SB6) final.
Turner's 1:41.63 was slower than her swim in the heats, and at the halfway point she was in fifth place.
However she dropped to seventh in the final 50m as Britain's Maisie Summers-Newton powered home in a new Paralympic record time of 1:32.34. China's Daomin Liu finishes second in 1:33.30 and the United States' Sophia Herzog was third in 1:36.06.
Speaking to RTÉ Sport after the race, 19-year-old Turner from Portarlington, said she would enjoy a day off on Sunday and turn her focus to her specialist event, the 50m butterfly.
"Other than seeing the time, I was actually quite happy with how I swam," said Turner of the breaststroke final, suggesting she was more relaxed for her heat.
However, after a fifth place finish in Rio, Turner admits the 50m 'fly has been her focus since 2016.
"I've a day off tomorrow and then my main event, the one I have been training for for five years, is on Monday. I'm not putting any expectation on myself, but between myself and my coach Dave [Malone], ever since Rio, we've been going for gold."
