Before playing rugby, Liston was a junior Gaelic Games player for C.L.G. Aodh Ruadh in her hometown of Ballyshannon.[4] She played gaelic football at minor level for Donegal GAA starting at under-16s in 2011.[5][6] In 2014 Liston was a part of the Donegal minor women's team that won the Ulster GAA Women's 'A' Football Championship where she was also awarded as player of the year.[4]

Liston started her rugby career at Ballyshannon RFC. While at Cardiff University in Wales, she played for Cardiff University Ladies RFC becoming captain in 2017.[7] In 2016, she made her Irish provincial debut for Ulster Rugby against Munster Rugby at Ravenhill Stadium in Belfast, Northern Ireland.[1][8] Later that year, she signed with English Women's Premiership club Bristol Ladies, making her debut against Darlington Mowden Park Sharks at the Northern Echo Arena in Darlington.[9]

In 2017, she was chosen to help to launch the ticket sales campaign for the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup at Ulster's Ravenhill Stadium, where the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup Final would be played, alongside representatives from the Ireland women's national rugby union team and the Irish Rugby Football Union.[10] Despite playing for Ulster, she continued to play for Bristol Ladies in their inaugural Premier 15s season.[11]
