Molly Scott has been selected to compete for Ireland in the 4x100m at the European Championships in Berlin.
The Carlow native won a silver medal for her country in the 4x100m relay at the World U20 Championships in Finland earlier this year.
Molly - who was also in action over the weekend at the National Track and Field Championships - took to Twitter to deliver the good news.

Ireland has named 41 athletes for the European Championships, which take place from August 6-12 in Berlin.
The announcement comes just 24-hours after Molly - from the St Laurence O'Toole Athletics Club in Carlow - was 0.02 off gold and the same time as third, in the outdoor National Senior Women's 100m.
