In the spirit of One Direction's latest charity adventures, Niall Horan refrained from pouring champagne over himself and staggering out of a nightclub at 5am covered in women and STIs for his birthday, and instead hosted a charity golf BONANZA in his hometown of Mullingar.

KEITH DUFFY FROM BOYZONE WAS THERE, which may not get people as excited as we are, but this picture certainly brought on some mild heart palpatations in the Sugarscape office this morning.

Mum Maura and brother Greg were there to join in the brthday fun too, as well as loads of One DIrection fans and a big old man with a beard - who could also be a One Direction fan to be honest. We shouldn't be so quick to judge.

Niall tweeted his weather-related concerns in the morning after seeing rain out of his window (and sitting next to it moodily, peering out with his hand on the pane of glass, reciting poetry and posing for a sepia instagram picture, we hope), but it looks like the sun came out for him.

Yep, even talking about the weather's more interesting when it involves One Direction.

THERE'S THE BEARDY MAN!

Also someone with a Justin Bieber bag, perhaps trying to entice Niall over to them given his recent bromantic escapades with the befringed American.

Happy Birthday Nialler, you stud.
