Niall Horan

Niall Horan Bio

Niall James Horan was born in Mullingar, County Westmeath in the Republic of Ireland. His father is Bobby Horan and his mother is Maura Gallagher. Niall has an older brother named Greg, and their parents divorced in 1998 when Niall was just 5 years old.

Niall lived at both parents homes before he decided to stay long-term with his dad, and he felt that living in Mullingar was the easiest thing to do back then because all of his friends were there.

Niall is the second youngest member of One Direction and auditioned for The X Factor in Dublin when he was 16 years old. His audition song was ‘So Sick?’ by Ne-Yo and three out of four judges gave him a ‘yes’ after his performance. At boot camp, Niall sang ‘Champagne Supernova’ by Oasis but didn’t make it through as a solo artist. He was then however chosen by the judges to become part of One Direction.
