Ruth Carroll, a former Cork Rose of Tralee contestant, was interviewed on last night’s Late Late Show on RTE.
She spoke about how herself and her husband Davey have been through some very hard times but thankfully have managed to weather the storm and come out the other side.
Ruth told of how an optician diagnosed told her to get an MRI where they diagnosed she had a mass on her brain.
A heavily pregnant Ruth gave birth to a healthy baby boy and then had to have surgery as she had a stroke that was thankfully quickly diagnosed.
Herself and her family have managed to get through the tough times and are all doing well now. She was praised on social media for bravery and dealing with her situation so well.
