Yesterday, it was One Direction‘s Niall Horan’s 19th birthday (vote for him in our boy bander birthday battle!), but let’s be honest, you probably already knew that. Between your comments and tweets from Justin Bieber, Olly Murs and more, it was definitely hard to miss. Unlike his bandmate, Liam Payne, who had a big party including a Batman cake for his bday, Niall decided to keep things more low key with a nice game of golf with family, friends and, oh yeah — fans!
Not only was the round of golf a celebration of the Irish cutie’s day of birth, but in true melt-your-heart fashion, Niall’s party was actually a charity event to raise money for Irish Autism Action (IAA) and Temporary Emergency Accommodation Mullingar (TEAM) in his hometown of Mullingar, Ireland. Sigh.
When asked about his charitable efforts, Niall says, “I am delighted and honored 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 TEAM and at the same time ensuring that both events are successful and fun for everyone involved.”
Clearly, everyone involved in the special day had a great time, and can we just say that we would’ve given anything — like, anything — to have been there. Just sayin’. Check out tons of pics from Niall’s birthday in the gallery below!
