Niall's bank balance is heading in 1D

Less than four years after him and his One Direction band mates finished second on the X-Factor, Niall Horan has amassed a personal fortune of €17m.

According to the compilers of the Sunday Times Rich List, Niall increased his wealth by €11m in 2013 - the year that 1D cemented their position as the biggest pop group in the world.

Thanks to the group’s reported financial gains last year, him and his colleagues are now the joint fourth richest musicians in Ireland and the UK under the age of 30.

While his financial future is assured, Niall will need another few decades of global chart success if he is to supplant U2 as Ireland’s richest musicians. According to the Rich List, the foursome have a combined wealth of €516m.

The Sunday Times also revealed that the 1D boys, who are coming to Dublin for a series of concerts next week, donated €2.5m to charity last year. This included the €730,000 the group raised for an anti-bullying campaign in America. The money was raised through the sale of 1D merchandise.
