YOU can take the boy out of Mullingar, but you can’t take Mullingar out of the boy; all Niall Horan wanted when he arrived home yesterday was a kebab.

Niall told RTE 2fm presenter Nicky Byrne that after a few pints in his home town last night, he sought a late night kebab but was devastated when the take away joint was closed.

Niall and his One Direction band mates are on Irish soil to play three massive gigs in Dublin’s Croke Park.

Niall admitted he is “feeling the nerves” before tonight’s opening show, but he is incredibly excited to play in front of an Irish crowd. He told the former Westlife singer,

“We’ve been waiting for a while for this. It’s a big dream of all of ours to play Croke Park”

The following three nights are the biggest concerts on the global Where We Are tour.

Niall and the lads are fully aware of the level of excitement that is growing before the big gigs, confirming, “Everyone knows how crazy the Irish fans are”.

Currently on route to Croke Park to complete 23 sound checks, Niall said he is extra nervous to play in front of his family and friends who will be travelling to the stadium for the shows.

The 20-year-old Casanova is particularly looking forward to performing the song ‘Don’t Forget Where You Belong’ which he wrote himself.
