The 19-year-old also set an Irish record time of 29.87 seconds.

She told Swim Ireland: “I”m just over the moon, there’s no better way to start a competition than gettting a medal, especially when it’s not something you to get going into the race.

“It really sets me up well for this week mentally. I’m really positive and just happy.”

McSharry will compete in the 100m Individual Medley tomorrow, where she holds the Irish record in.

Meanwhile, Danielle Hill set a new Irish record in the 100 Backstroke.
