Morning Of Near Misses At The Paralympics For Team Ireland.

More medals are up for grabs in the coming hours.

It's been a morning of near misses so far for Team Ireland at the Paralympics.

After his bronze medal performance yesterday, Gary O'Reilly finished fourth in the hand cycling H5 Time Trial final.

Niamh McCarthy has finished in fifth place in the F41 discus final, with a best throw of 28.94 metres.

In swimming, Barry McClements ended up in 10th place overall in the SM9 200 metres individual medley.

Last week's gold medal winner Ellen Keane was second in her heat and she has qualified for the final of the SM9 200 metres individual medley.

That takes place just after 10.30am Irish time.

And it's another personal best for Limerick swimmer Roisin Ni Riain.

With a time of 1 minute 20.81 seconds, she has made the final of the SB13 100 metres breaststroke and is back in the pool just after 11am.

Phil Eagelsham missed out on a place in the shooting final.
