"Word's cannot describe how grateful we are".
That was the message from Rachel Diyaolu's family, after she was reunited with her 19 year old sister late last night.
The Carlow student moved to Sumy in South East Ukraine last November to study medicine.
After two rescue attempts and overcoming a number of hurdles along the way, Rachael made it on EU territory yesterday.
She arrived in Dublin Airport late last night and had an emotional reunion with her family.
Words cannot describe how grateful we are.
To Joe and Gary, our brave heroes, we’ll be singing your praises till the end of time!We’re ordering the extra dinner table seats as we speak!
To @dfatirl for sorting Racheal out once she got to the border! Thank you! (2/3)

In a tweet, her sister wrote: "After 15 sleepless nights and buckets of tears, my family and I are at peace knowing she’s home and safe."
"A sincere Thank You to everyone for all the love, prayers and support shown to us."
