'Directioners' around the world now have the chance to get their hands on a commemorative note with Niall Horan on the front.
The limited edition note, called the 'Gar' has been issued by Mullingar Chamber of Commerce. The note can be bought online from today at a cost of €9.99, which covers, printing, administration and postage worldwide.
One Direction fans who want to buy the note may want to hurry though, as there are less than 500 left.
Although the note can be sent around the world, it will only be of benefit to people in Mullingar, with 'Gar'-holders entitled to special offers at the town's participating outlets.
The note was designed by Bartle D'Arcy and has previously honoured boxer John Joe Nevin and novelist James Joyce. It is available to purchase on the chamber's website.
Local councillor Ken Glynn said the 'Gar' is a great idea that will benefit local business.
"If it helps the local economy it’s a good thing. It's quite a novel idea and there's a lot of interest in this one," the Fianna Fáil councillor said.
Chamber president Pat Whelan previously said: "the 'Gar' has been in circulation since 2011 and we decided it would be great to honour Niall by releasing a special edition Gar with Niall's face," he said.
"We are all 'One Direction' fans and we are proud to see one of our young men from the town doing so well for himself."
