Newly crowned Greg O'Shea, AKA the King of Limerick, is BACK with a huge bang at Shannon airport this morning.

Amber Gill won't be getting her paws back on her fellow winner Greg for a while, judging by all those photos and autographs he has to get through.

The Love Island winner has returned to the Emerald Isle after winning the reality show with Newcastle beauty Amber, despite only knowing her for 12 days. The Irish charm always comes out on top…

Since leaving the villa, the rugby player has spent time in Geordie-land with his new lady, meeting all of her friends and family, but the time has come for him to see his boys once more.

Shannon airport pulled out all the stops for his return, setting up a decorated part of the airport in his honour filled with confetti and balloons. His fans must be in the millions at this stage.

You can hear the screams from miles away, as hundreds of people waited in anticipation to see their king land on Irish soil.

He's 100 percent our type on paper, that's for sure, and Ireland really does give the best welcomes. Time will tell whether he'll stay in Ireland or move over to the UK to be with Amber.

So far, he's talked about investing his half of the prize money, as well as getting facial surgery for a broken nose and fractured skull. He also wants to sit his solicitor exams, because he's perfect.

He walked into that villa, treated Amber like the queen she is and walked away with 25,000 pounds to show for it. See what happens when you're not a gaslighting villain like Michael?

According to RTÉ News, 14 passengers and two members of cabin crew staff were taken to University Hospital Limerick with minor injuries.

The airline is providing relevant care and support for those involved.

An Aer Lingus flight bound for Shannon Airport was forced to make an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy Airport on Monday at 7:15pm.

Flight EI-110 reported hydraulic issues shortly after take-off from JFK. During the emergency landing one of the plane's brakes overheated which caused a fire to erupt in the landing gear compartment.

The plane was carrying 110 passengers when it returned to JFK. According to WABC, the pilot informed Air Traffic Control “We do have a technical issue here – we lost our hydraulic system, one hydraulic system so we are going to have to return to Kennedy at some stage, not quite yet.”

In a statement to RTÉ News the company said emergency services were on the scene as a precaution and all passengers disembarked safely.

One of the passengers on board the flight told Mail Online that the pilot was calm and excellent throughout the entire ordeal.

“It just looked like a sci-fi movie. The actual touchdown itself was pretty bumpy, but not out of control considering, he did an excellent job,” passenger Patrick Dyer Wolf told WABC.

“Right away we could see there were maybe 15 or 20 fire trucks right on the runway immediately, ready to drive up, and they started spraying us like almost immediately.”

Aer Lingus flight EI-110 has been due to land at Shannon at 6 o’clock this morning but the company are said to have provided all passengers with accommodation until the next available flight.
