Niall has his eye on someone

Niall Horan‘s dad has revealed that his son is smitten with a girl from his home town of Mullingar in Ireland.

Butcher Bobby says One Direction star Niall, 18, has ‘big feelings’ for the lucky teenager, who he describes as having brunette hair and big brown eyes.

‘There’s a local girl that Niall loves,’ says Bobby, 51.

‘I know he thinks of her as his sweetheart.

‘She’s very attractive, and they’re close, but I don’t know whether he’s made any advances on her yet.’

Bobby refuses to name Niall‘s crush, though his description fits with 17-year-old Ali McGinley, who the singer was snapped with during his recent trip home. 

The pair are said to have ‘got to know’ each other over the past few months, but Niall‘s hectic schedule has made it hard for him to have a relationship
with the Alexandra College student.

‘When he goes out with this girl,’ they go to the local disco and go bowling,’ says Bobby.

‘There’s not a lot to do around here.

‘He’s quite shy with girls, but if I were to say what his type is, it’s a girl who likes the craic – to have a laugh.’
