“Serious sanctions against her child may be warranted, but he will get her message much more successfully by punishments that involve teaching, discussion, and withdrawal of privileges that will be on “I was embarrassed a little bit until she started talking to me when we got home ,” says the teen.

She thought she would feel ( GOOD ) , though, if her brother Frank came to see to the show. She asked him, even begged him to be there, THINKING he might just say yes but then not turn up. ‘I promise you, Michelle. I’ll be sitting in the front row from the beginning to the end of the play.’

There were mixed emotions in Dundalk ahead of the potential return of Isil bride Lisa Smith to Co Louth.

To many in Dundalk, the former Defence Forces member is just "Lisa from down the road".

Despite her high-profile image as the first Irish person to be questioned in relation to terrorist offences abroad, there are many in her community who would like to see her afforded a return to normal life.

Ms Smith (38) travelled to war-torn Syria in 2015 after converting to Islam and becoming radicalised and marrying an Isil fighter. Her two-year-old daughter is now in the care of her family in Dundalk.

This backlash might seem odd. The World Travel and Tourism Council, a trade body, says that tourism directly accounts for nearly 3% of the world’s GDP. The growing backlash against tourism has coincided with extraordinary growth in visitor numbers.

Mark McGuinness, who lives just around the corner from the family home, said it was Ms Smith's right to go home.

"I'd know Lisa from hanging around Dundalk since she was a kid. To me, she just wants to come home to her family," he said. "Her family are good people and she was a good person herself. Lisa would have been a very lovely person in her day and a great girl to talk to.

"I think she has all the right in the world to come home. It's her home. She was born and reared here."

While one local shouted, "send her to Mountjoy" yesterday, Sabina McDonnell, also from the area, said: "This is where she's from. You can't stop someone coming to their own country. You can't stop her coming home. She might get a bit of backlash from the community but she deserves to come home."

Ms Smith was deported from Turkey on Sunday morning and arrived into Dublin Airport before being taken to Kevin Street garda station for questioning.

Most locals the Irish Independent spoke to were busying themselves with Christmas preparations and several said that they "don't really care either way".

But some were not as indifferent about the possibility that Ms Smith may rejoin their community this week.

One resident in her locality, Patrick Kelly, said that while everyone was entitled to a second chance, her arrival home might put Dundalk at risk.

"This lady could be putting her own people at risk. Her own people of Dundalk. God only knows what plans they [Isil] have," he said.

"I think she could be betraying her own people and I don't think she does deserve to come back. Working with Isil can bring nothing good. It's bad and evil."

There were suggestions that Ms Smith would be shunned from the local Muslim community. But Nooh Buye, imam for the local mosque, said: "On behalf of the community, we will leave all matters to the Government."
