Jon Rudd has been appointed Swim Ireland's national performance director, the national governing body has announced.

Rudd, Plymouth Leander head coach since 1989 and director of swimming at Plymouth College since 2006, is the coach of 2012 Olympic gold medallist and world record holder Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania and 2016 Olympic finalist Ben Proud.
