KERRY'S all conquering Rugby hero Siobhan Fleming returned home to a rapturous reception on Monday night with hundreds of her family, friends, teammates and fans waiting to welcome her at Kerry Airport.
The Ireland, Munster and Tralee RFC star arrived in Kerry on Monday night fresh from her part in Sunday's inspirational win over a dogged Italian team that saw the Ireland Women's Rugby Team secure their first ever Six Nations Grand Slam.
From the airport Siobhan was whisked to her hometown of Currow, where bonfires were lit in her honour, before she was brought to a homecoming party in Castleisland.
Siobhan said she was "absolutely blown away," by the huge reception.
