Ireland finished in a creditable fifth position in the three-day eventing competition at the London 2012 Games.

The result meant that Ireland's three competitors qualified for the individual eventing final, in which Aoife Clarke took seventh place.

Killyleagh-based Joseph Murphy was 14th and Mark Kyle 21st.

Meanwhile young Wexford swimmer Grainne Murphy has withdrawn from the 800m freestyle event as she continues to overcome glandular fever.
