Veteran politician and proud local Paddy Harte was among those who spoke to welcome Chloe home.
“She has done her town proud and she had done her county proud,” said the former TD.
Chloe, 23, was joined by family and friends.
“It was incredible,” she said, “there were so many people who came out and it really is very humbling.
“It’s so great to be home.”
Chloe made it through her first round but was beaten narrowly by a the former world No1.
Experts in the sport predict that by the time 2016 comes round, Chloe could be in a position to challenge for a medal.
