Maud received an OBE in the 2015 New Year Honours list and the news of the incident made considerable headlines across the UK. According to recent press reports, Maud continues to make a steady recovery and her wounds are beginning to heal. When she is strong enough to make the long journey, she plans to return to Northern Ireland.
