Asami Zdrenka from girl band, Neon Jungle, said after visiting Derry she would like to travel to Mullingar to visit ‘One Direction’s’ Niall Horan.

“I want to go to Mullingar - that’s where Niall from ‘One Direction’ is from,” she told the Derry Journal on Friday.

Neon Jungle took to the stage during the MTV Crashes Derry concert on Friday but 10 hours previous the girl band had not even heard of Derry.

“We found out late last night that we were coming to Derry. I’d never heard of the place before hand but I am so happy to be here and we are always excited about meeting our Irish fans - they are great craic,” said Amira McCarthy in an attempt at a Derry accent.

Neon Jungle weren’t the only act to have never heard of Derry.

English singer-songwriter, MNEK, said it was his first time in the North of Ireland but explained he intended not to make it his last.

“I can’t believe I have never beard of this beautiful city - everyone is so nice and welcoming - I don’t even mind the weather.

“I only found out I was going to be playing at MTV Crashes Derry a few weeks ago and to be honest with you I was so excited.

“I think it’s a tremendous city and the venue is pretty awesome - I would be back in a flash,” he smiled.
