Sligo's Mona McSharry has broken another Irish record at the Irish Short-Course Swimming Championships in Antrim.

The 18-year-old today broke the 100 metre freestyle record, which had stood since 1995. 

McSharry took more than half a second off the off the old mark, clocking 54.34 seconds in this evening's final. She broke it earlier this morning as well in a time of 54.65.   

This followed yesterday's record for the 50 metre freestyle, as McSharry improved on the time she had set, just a few weeks ago.

"I’m over the moon, I’m so happy," the Sligo swimmer said afterwards. "This morning to have got that record when it was 23-years-old was absolutely amazing.

"54 seconds is a fast time and I didn’t think I’d get it. To be able to go even faster tonight and be even closer to a 53 is amazing. I’m just feeling great."
