It was a very poor second day for Irish athletes at the European indoor championships in Paris.

The best performance of the day came from Letterkenny’s Darren McBrearty, He finished fifth in his heat of the mens 800m in a time of 149.78, it was only two seconds slower than his personnel best that he set at a fast Vienna indoor meet last month.

Cork’s Ailis McSweeney will be disappointed with her seventh place finish in the semi-final of the 60 metres, McSweeney ran a time of 7.43seconds which was well below her best of 7.32 that she set at the Irish indoors in Belfast in February.

It was also a bad for Ferrybank athlete Kelly Proper and Irish/American pole vaulter Tori Pena who both failed to advance.
