IRISH One Direction member Niall Horan celebrates his birthday today – and is proving he is still a home town boy at heart by celebrating in Mullingar.

One fifth of the most famous boy band on the planet, Niall has decided to celebrate his birthday by raising money for charity.

The Irish weather has been as reliable as ever, with Niall tweeting this morning: “look out the window..see rain! perfect weather for golf....naaaatttt”

He earlier tweeted: “i just woke up! im 19 wohoooo! thank you all soo much for the birthday wishes and stuff! love u”

He also tweeted: “gona havta ask my mother again..but i think i was born around this time of the morning..so like 8:15/ 8:30am”

The teen is hosting a private event in the Mullingar Park hotel, with tickets for the event selling out to eager fans in a matter of minutes.

All the funds raised from the event will be divided between Irish Autism Action charity and a homeless organisation called Temporary Emergency Accommodation Mullingar (T.E.A.M.).

He said: "I am delighted and honoured to be in the fortunate position of being able to give back to my community.

“The plan for my birthday, which is on the 13th of September, is to raise as much money as possible for IAA and T.E.A.M. and at the same time ensuring that both events are successful and fun for everyone involved”, he continued.
