Niall Horan

Niall James Horan (Born September 13, 1993 in Mullingar, County Westmeath) is an Irish singer-songwriter and guitarist. He became known in 2010 as a member of the boy band One Direction.

Life

Niall Horan's parents divorced when he was approximately five years old. Niall and his brother, Greg Horan, lived with both parents for a while. They later decided to move in with their father, Bobby Horan. Horan attended St. Kenny's National School Elementary School and later Coláiste Mhuire, a Catholic boys' school. Both schools are located in or around Mullingar. Horan started playing the guitar when he was around eleven, after his brother had received one for Christmas but did not use it. Horan learned his guitar skills through YouTube videos. His aunt discovered his talent for singing after hearing his singing in the car and mistaking it for a song on the radio.

social commitment

In May 2018 Niall auctioned his first guitar via the Whyte auction house, which he had received as a gift when he was 9 years old. He donated the auctioned amount of around 1,300 euros to an organization based in Dublin that cares for those affected by the disease Epidermolysis bullosa.

Influences

Horan names The Script and Bon Jovi among musicians who have influenced him.
