Ireland's sailors have qualified another boat for the Paralympics.

The Irish Sonar Trio of John Twomey, Austin O'Carroll and Ian Costello have secured a berth at next year's games in Rio.

The crew have qualified their boat with a day to spare at this week's championships in Melbourne.

It means that Corkman, Twomey, will now compete in a record 11th games.
