TEEN superstars One Direction are set to storm Croke Park as part of their world tour.

The boy band and X Factor graduates will follow in the footsteps of iconic acts such as U2, Take That and Westlife to take over the stadium and perform to 80,000 fans on May 24, 2014.

Tickets will go on sale on May 25 at 10am.

Niall Horan and his band mates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, revealed details of their Where We Arena tour at London's Wembley Arena, this morning.

They announced details of their upcoming gigs in front of 100 media who travelled from as far as South America to hear the news that the award-winning group will be once again setting out on the road to perform to their legions of followers, including stopovers in Peru, Brazil and Chile.

The quintet will embark on whirlwind visit to at least 10 countries and Mullingar-born singer Horan told the Irish Independent that it'll be a historic moment in his career when he walks out onto the Croke Park stage.

"We're really excited about this, it's going to be so much fun and is bigger than ever before," he said.

One Direction played four sell out concerts at Dublin's O2 in February and March, with thousands left bitterly disappointed to lose out on tickets for the energetic shows.

However, Horan said that coming back to play in his home country to an even bigger crowd at GAA Headquarters will make sure no one misses out.
