An 81-year-old Irish woman has said she still has not come out of the clouds after meeting her estranged mother for the first time after 60 years of searching.

Eileen Macken feared she would never meet her long lost mother.

RTÉ's Liveline agreed to help the 81-year-old track her mother down.

Eileen travelled to Scotland with her family to meet Elizabeth, who celebrates turning 104 tomorrow.

Upon arrival at her mother's home, Eileen enjoyed another surprise when, after knocking on Elizabeth's door, she was met by a man who she soon realised was her half-brother.

"I went over to see her and she is the most attractive lady", Ms Macken said.

"They accepted me and I had a great chat with my mother", she added.

Birthday. The first Meeting with their daughter was probably the most attractive gift: "she was thrilled and has let go of my Hand never", says the daughter.

Eileen and Elizabeth immediately hit it off.

"I think it's almost gone past her, but there was such a bond between the two of us".

"I said we were from Ireland and she said "I was born in Ireland".

She also said that she was so happy since meeting her mother that she has been slacking on the housework.

"Once I heard that, nothing would stop me trying to get to see her", Eileen said. "I was just so happy and I just wanted to get closure so everybody will know that all their hard work and prayers and kindness were answered".

"If you saw her little face, such a happy little lady, she is just fantastic".

She said she spent "three wonderful days" getting to know her mother and after waiting so long to meet her, found it hard to leave her again.

"She put her arms around me".
