Katie-George Dunlevy returned triumphant to Mountcharles on Sunday evening with her two gold and one silver Paralympic medals.
Her father, John, was a proud Mountcharles man as Katie-George was led through the town by the Ardaghey Pipe Band.
Master of ceremonies and chief organiser of the event, Cllr Noel Jordan, had a real Donegal welcome ready for the Golden Girl.
There was a surprise in story for the Dunlevys with a plaque erected on the wall outside their homestead and it was unveiled by Katie-George and her dad, John.
Speaking at the event, Katie-George thanked all who had turned out on the evening and said she was inspired by the support she had got.
Afterwards she posed for photographs with all and sundry.
