This Irish mammy’s reaction to a surprise homecoming is everything


Trying to pull the wool over the eyes of any Irish mammy is no mean feat, so hats off to Ciara Redmond who did the almost impossible this week.

After four days of air travel and God knows how long keeping her secret to herself, Ciara, originally from Co Cork but living in Melbourne, made her way to Co Wexford where her mum was staying for the summer, and got a reaction which had us more than a little choked up at SHEmazing! HQ this morning.

Sharing the footage of her reunion with her mam on Facebook, Ciara wrote: "Well after 4 days of travelling from Oz, 19 hour layover in Delhi and caught on a 17 hour cancelled flight in Frankfurt- it was well worth the surprise!"

"Home for good. Ireland I missed you but even more I missed my family," she wrote in the post which has been viewed more than 1,000 times since its upload.

"Thanks to everyone who helped surprise my mammy! God she reacted well!" Ciara added.

Ah lads, we are all OVER this.
