Former Kerry star 'Bomber' Liston's name causes security alert on flight to Cork

A cabin crew member on the flight became alarmed when she heard a fellow passenger calling out 'Bomber' to the former full-forward.

He explains that an in-flight Google search was needed to calm the situation.

"One of his [the stag's] mates who was sitting two rows behind me, called me: 'Bomber.'

"And I didn't hear him and he just called it louder, 'Bomber.'

"The air hostess heard it and got a bit of a shock, reported him to the captain and asked him to stay on until everyone had left the plane.

"He Googled Eoin Liston and they accepted it then after that."
