There has been a heroic welcome in Co Cavan for Irish Solheim Cup star Leona Maguire.
The 26-year-old golfer from Ballyconnell played an integral role as Europe won just their second victory on US soil.
Maguire picked up 4.5 out of a possible 5 points – a record for a rookie.
Speaking on her return home, she said it was “nice to see female athletes getting the recognition they deserve” in what she called “an incredible year for Irish sport”.
