Leona Maguire Receives Hero's Homecoming In Cavan


Golfer Leona Maguire received a hero's welcome as she returned home to her native Cavan after leading Europe to victory in the Solheim Cup.

The 26-year-old became the most successful rookie in the history of the tournament.

Rolling home ontop of a gold sports car, Leona said she was overwhelmed with the support from Ballyconnell.

"These moments don't happen often so you might as well support them when they do," she said.

The athlete said she was grateful for the local support, especially from non golfing fans.

"A lot of people were watching golf here that don't normally watch golf and it's nice have them enjoy it."

She even joked that it gave GAA fans a new interest.

"Cavan didn't go too far in the football this year so it's nice to give them something to root for"

"The lads carried it last year so it's nice to do my bit this year," she added.
