Niall Horan 'excited to come home to Ireland' for first time this year
One Direction are set to play three dates in Dublin this weekend, and Niall Horan can't wait to get back on home soil.
The Mullingar man (left) hasn't been home since last year, so he's eager to spend time with his family and friends.
The boys have been on tour all year, and no doubt the 22-year-old is looking forward to some home cooking and a kickabout with his pals.
"Haven't been home since Christmas so I'm looking forward to getting home this week to see the family and the lads," he said.
Meanwhile, here's hoping his voice holds out until the weekend as he's finally starting to feel the strain of the band's On the Road Again tour.
"Need a good night's sleep, the voice is starting to struggle with all these back-to-back shows," he said.
1D recently announced that Jamie Lawson will be supporting them at their sold-out Dublin gigs.
It has been a whirlwind year for Horan and bandmates, but he made sure to celebrate his 22nd birthday in style last month.
The blond singer rang in the occasion in Las Vegas, surrounded by bikini clad clubgoers and a handful of famous faces.
Niall and close friend Louis Tomlinson were pictured enjoying vodka and champagne throughout the night to watch Diplo's performance and even shared a photo with Enrique Iglesias and Lil Jon, before eventually calling it a night at 5am and heading back to the Wynn Hotel.
