THE Dublin Airport Authority is considering banning Jedward fans from the airport this Sunday amid safety fears.

Although Katie Taylor received a huge welcome there on Sunday night following her boxing world victory, the twins claim to have been told they will not get a similar reception.

Jedward said yesterday the airport authority has indicated they will not be allowed to hold a press conference on site.

A spokesman for the Dublin Airport Authority said it has "yet to make a final decision in relation to the Jedward homecoming".

However, the DAA is determined there won't be a repeat of the chaotic scenes last week when hundreds of fans turned up to see Jedward leave for Baku.
