Summary of Irish performances will be updated periodically here, during the day

A fine performance from Ruby Millet saw her miss the Long Jump final by a single centimeter, but a great showing from the St Abban's AC athlete, who finished in 13th place overall with a jump of 6.09m. The top twelve progress to the final


Reality Osuoha clocks 21.77sec, to finish fifth in his 200m semi-final. "It wasn't the best of my races but to make the semi-final of the Europeans, I'm pretty happy. I'll take a lot from this and become a better athlete."


Aaron Sexton is the fastest qualifier for today's 200m Final, at 5:35pm this evening, after clocking 21.13sec when winning his Semi-Final. "Everything I've got. It's the last one - give it everything."


It's a stunning National Under-20 record for our women's 4x400m team, who clocked 3:41.28 to finish fourth. Simone Lalor, Miriam Daly, Laura Nally and Rachel McCann SMASH the Irish U20 record with 3:41.28 to move on to tomorrow's Final


Tough work, making a European final, but the Irishmen, Ciaran Carthy, Adam Hughes, Jack Raftery and David Ryan, are marching on to the 4x400m Final after clocking 3:13.72 to finish third in their 4x400m heat


Shay McEvoy reflects on a brilliant year, after finishing 14th, in the men's 3000m Final, in 8:38.03,  "I wouldn't have thought I'd be here a year ago so on the whole, I'm very happy."


Deirdre Murray had good reason to be proud, after finishing 7th in the European 400m hurdles Semi-Final, in 60.44 sec, "I went for it. I did what I could. If I was told at the start of the year that I'd be here running these times I'd be delighted."


Sommer Lecky bowed out of the High Jump Final, with a best of 1.84m, finishing in joint-fifth. "I'm kind of gutted because I knew 1.87m was in me today but you have to perform on the day. But I can take this championships away with me and it'll definitely help me progress."


Heartbreak for Aaron Sexton who finished fourth in the Men's 200m Final, clocking the same time, 21.18 sec, as the Bronze medallist, being pipped in the photofinish. "I left everything out there."


52.72 sec for Davicia Patterson, and again it's just off the medals, with a 4th place finish
