Before Niall Horan headed back to London to do some serious One Direction business, he went out for lunch in his hometown of Mullingar, Westmeath, to chow down with his nearest and dearest.

Obviously a fan of anything food based, it sounds like Niall spend so long getting his munch on his almost missed his plane back to the Big Smoke. Nice work, Horan.

"woo that was close, nearly missed the flight back to london tonight !"[sic] he tweeted.

"Last person on the plane, had t leg it !"

He was snapped strolling through the streets of Mullingar, waltzing along right next to an I LOVE ONE DIRECTION poster, which it looks like he didn't spot - although we're not sure what we'd expect him to do if he saw it, get his picture taken with it? Kiss the window? Lick his own face through the glass?

Get annoyed that it was on sale?

We can't help but wonder if the pap was really far away, or walking backwards infront of him shouting words of encouragement to Niall's moody stares...
