An Offaly community came out in force today to welcome home one of their own who conquered the coronavirus. 

The village of Rhode lined the roads as 84 year old Mary Joe Kilmurray returned home after her time in hospital. 

Not only did Mary Joe survive the coronavirus, she has also overcome a broken hip.

She got a fitting rousing welcome home from her friends, family and neighbours in a village well used to triumphant home comings.

Virgin Media News cameras were there to capture the moment and you can watch it on the evening news at 5.30pm on Virgin Media One.
