Ellen Keane from Clontarf has claimed Ireland's second medal of the IPC Swimming World Championships in Glasgow.

The 20-year-old took the bronze in the SM9 200m individual medley.

In a superb performance, Ellen also broke her personal best in the final.

Speaking after the race, Ellen said finishing third was a major surprise.

I’m still in shock! I didn’t think I got third! I looked at the clock and registered my time and was happy with my PB, then saw the ‘3’ and couldn’t believe it! I’m just so delighted and especially for my parents after dressing up in their Irish suits all week!

Earlier this week, Darragh McDonald won bronze in the S6 400m freestyle.
