LIMERICK’S Greg O’Shea was welcomed home by hundreds of fans at Shannon Airport on Wednesday following his big win on ITV’s Love Island.
“All these people, this is bizarre,” the Corbally man said on seeing the crowds who turned out to welcome him home, “It literally could have just been my dad outside the door and I would have been happy.”
O’Shea came out on top of the Love Island competition even though he was the last contestant to enter the villa, and with partner Amber Gill took home the £50,000 prize money.
The 24-year-old returned home without his Love-Island partner, Amber Gill, but says he “asked her about fifty times would she come home with me now, but she’s so busy, everyone in Britain wants a bit of Amber.”

After saying he would get Gill to visit Limerick soon, when asked what will be the “Greg O’Shea Limerick experience” he told the Limerick Post, “I don’t know, I’d have to bring her around to one of the pubs, a quiet ‘old man’ pub, definitely get her a pint of Guinness, bring her for a walk maybe up by Cratloe. Something cute, nothing too fancy.”
