Galway rower Fiona Murtagh was a part of the Irish team that eased to victory in their heat at the final Olympic qualification regatta.

Ireland's women's four team of Emily Hegarty, Eimear Lambe, Aifric Keogh and Fiona Murtagh recorded an effortless win in Switzerland this morning.

Ireland led from start to finish in calm conditions over the 2000m course on the 'Lake of the Gods', with Russia, Ukraine and Germany all trailing in their wake and heading for the repechage.

More than 400 rowers from 49 countries are chasing Tokyo 2020 berths in the 14 Olympic classes at the scenic event in Lucerne.

The final takes place on Monday morning.
