Irish superstar Niall Horan has revealed that he likes ‘keep it Irish’ by taking items that remind him of home with him when he goes on tour.
The former One Direction singer is now a successful solo artist and delights audiences all over the world.
However, the Mullingar star revealed he can get homesick and said that he likes to bring a number of items with him to remind him of Ireland.
He made the revelation when he appeared on the Ryan Tubridy show and was presented with a box of crisps, biscuits and other items to remind him of Ireland.
Horan revealed that he loves to have these sort of things as they help him ’keep it Irish’.
He said: “There’s always bits lying around. Someone will give me an Ireland football or rugby jersey. It’s great, it’s nice to keep it Irish.
“When I come home I bring bags of rock shandy home with me, Club Orange. Keeping it country.”
The star also spoke about Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Dublin, whose staff and patients were also appearing on the show.
He said: “It’s incredible. I went in there a few Christmases ago now, I need to go back in again actually. The work that they do in there is unbelievable.
“When you do something like that, it’s obviously very sad because there are kids in there at Christmas but there’s smiles on their faces and they know that they’re being very well looked after by unbelievable staff and the work that they do in that place is just incredible.”
