Gar honour for Niall
Gar honour for Niall

Una D'Arcy

Niall Horan is to be honoured by his hometown when the new Gar for 2014 is released with the 1D star’s face on it.

The Gar is Mullingar’s unique tourism currency, launched in 2011 and based on the design of the old £10 note; it featured James Joyce, a famous Mullingar resident, who also featured on the original punt note.

Olympic silver medallist John Joe Nevin replaced the author in the summer of 2012 to celebrate his homecoming and his excellent run in the London Olympics.

Now, facing into 2014, Mullingar Chamber has chosen another famous citizen for its currency and hopes his fans will come to the town and spend both time and the Niall Horan Gar while they are here.
