She touched down on Dublin ground shortly before 1pm today, where she was cheerfully greeted by her aunt Anne and mother Caroline bearing pink and gold balloons.

Tears streaming down her face, an emotional Ms Towey uttered: "I am so relieved, I can't believe it, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone, the embassy, the ambassador, the Taoiseach, Tanaiste, Mary Lou McDonald, Claire Kerrane, the media, without you guys I wouldn't be here right now.", reports Dublin Live.

Lauding the solidarity among Irish people, Ms Towey stated: "Without the support of the Irish people this wouldn't have been possible. This is an amazing country and I feel bad for people that don't have that support that we have, we have each other's back."

Reflecting on her speedy release and return home, she admitted her disbelief, adding: "I am so emotional. It has been tiring, mentally, being stuck in the country. When my mother came out to me it was a massive help but it was the unknown, not knowing anything, not knowing what was about to happen."

When asked if she was worried about not being able to return home, Ms Towey admitted: "I didn't know what was going to happen. It's only between yesterday and today that I got clarity. I'm just glad to be back, I'm so thankful to my amazing family and friends going through everything with me and keeping me strong."

The 28 year old expressed her eagerness to reunite with her loved ones and take some time to rest. She said: "But I'm back now and I'm excited to get home and see my family. I'm going home to see my family, see my friends, and sleep. That's the plan, go home and rest. The Government, the people, the media, has been amazing."

Her mum, Caroline, described the entire experience as "a nightmare". She stated: "It is great to have her home, it was a nightmare. Once it kicked off we got bombarded with messages of support. Huge thanks to the country, to our politicians, to our people, to our ambassador, all her staff, for the amazing work they have done for us."

"It is a nightmare, a real nightmare, but it's over now, and we just have to go home and get our heads together and move on."
