It is Haley O'Sullivan's first trip back to Ireland since she became the first ever Texas Rose to win the contest just over six weeks ago.
Haley's late grandfather, Joseph O'Sullivan, was raised in Bere Island and her grand-uncle, Mick O'Sullivan still lives in the family home in Ballinakilla.
Joseph was one of a family of 11. He left Bere Island in 1948 when he was 17 and emigrated to the US.
