You might have missed it while you were watching one of today's underwhelming GAA games, but Ireland have a new European Championships medalist in athletics.

Ciara Mageean surged down the final straight to take bronze in the 1500m final in Amsterdam this afternoon, and was a whisker away from sneaking into second place.

The UCD student came from the middle of the pack as the final neared its conclusion, and as you can see from the RTE footage, Mageean ran a brilliant tactical race to come away with a medal.
