Swim Ireland have announced a team of 19 for the LEN European Short Course Championships in Glasgow from 4-8 December.
Eleven senior and eight junior athletes have been selected for the event, with all team members then travelling on to compete in the Irish Short Course Championships from the 12-15 December.
The selection policy allowed for both a senior and junior cohort to be selected to the championships, with selections made from individual's performances in their identified summer benchmark meet in relation to the IOC’s 2020 Olympic qualifying time.
Shane Ryan will be looking to emulate his performances from last year where he collected a bronze medal at the World Short Course championships in China.
Swim Ireland Swimmer of the Year Brendan Hyland also had a top 10 finish at those championships in the 200m Butterfly.
At the 2017 event in Copenhagen, Jordan Sloan and Mona McSharry were finalists with Conor Ferguson reaching a semi-final.
