Niall Horan Age, Height & Facts About The Former One Direction Star

For a while, in the Western world, it was presumed that the era of boy bands was over. Then came One Direction. The group consisted of a couple of boys who had been eliminated from The X Factor. One of them was Niall Horan, an Irish singer, and songwriter who, at a young age, turned disappointment into one of the biggest musical feats of modern history.

Even though like all boy bands, One Direction eventually broke up, Niall Horan has continued to remain one of the most successful young artists in the music industry. We detailed his journey as a singer below, along with details about his height and other facts about him.

How Old is Niall Horan?

The former One Direction singer was born on the 13th of September 1993 in Mullingar, Ireland. He is one of two children born to his parents, Maura Gallagher and Bobby Horan. Niall had the joy of a united family for the first five years of his life before his parents got divorced, and he lived with his mother for a year. At the age of seven, he moved in permanently with his father.

He began his education at St. Kenny’s National School. At the age of 11, Niall Horan started learning the guitar, using YouTube tutorials. Having discovered his passion for music and an extraordinary ability to sing, he began performing to an audience when he was a teenager, at his local arts center.

In 2010, when he was 16 years old, he took the step that would alter the course of his life. He auditioned for The X Factor. He never made it to the final round of the competition and was eliminated at the Bootcamp category.

However, while he did not perform well enough to move on to the next round of the competition on his own, he did enough to be placed among a group of boys who also failed to advance in the competition. Those boys were Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik, and they formed the boy band – One Direction.

As a group, they finished third in the seventh season of the competition. Following the end of their time on The X Factor, Niall Horan and other members of the band were signed to a recording contract, turning Niall Horan into a professional musician at the age of 17. They released the single, What Makes You Beautiful in September 2011, and an album, Up All Night, later in November.
