It was a pretty emotional weekend for Niall Horan, with One Direction performing at Dublin's Croke Park. Not only was Niall on home soil, but he was also returning to the place where it all started.

Remember when Niall auditioned for The X Factor at Croke Park? As you'd imagine, returning to the scene was a big moment for Niall.

In advance of the show, Niall told the host of The Nicky Byrne Show: "It's here, finally, we've been waiting for a while for this, it's a big dream of all of ours to play Croke Park, and it's finally happening..."

After the first show at Croke, Niall tweeted: "Ireland! thank you so much for tonight! That was the best experience of my life! Incredible night! Loved every second of it! Love you !" After the second show, he tweeted, "What a night !"

But it was his reflective tweet about coming full circle that got us a bit choked up, as Niall tweeted: "4 years ago I stood there and auditioned for the Xfactor, can't believe we just played 3 nights in that stadium!"

He added, "Thank you all so much for an incredible weekend! Can guarantee I won't be forgetting this one! Thank you Ireland !"

We're so proud.
