One Direction tickets as a surprise - watch Clodagh’s magical moment

The exciting moment when a child in Derry found out she was going to see One Direction has been captured on video.

Clodagh Harkin, who is 5 years old, is a devoted fan of the boyband.

The youngster was sitting blissfully unaware on the sofa, when she was asked where she was going on Sunday.

She then found out that she was going to see her heroes at their sold-out concerts at Croke Park and cried with delight.

Clodagh, who comes from Creggan, will no doubt cry with delight again when she sees the band in person on Sunday.Today another sold-out crowd recreated scenes from the Beatles’ heyday, screaming in their thousands as the five young men took to the stage at Croke Park.

It was a homecoming for Niall Horan, the 20-year-old from Mullingar.

Clodagh’s video has been posted on youtube and will hopefully be viewed by the down-to-earth members of One Direction. Niall Hogan is so down to earth that during yesterday’s concert he mentioned his favourite Superquinn sausages, and his local kebab shop. Thanks to Ashleigh Newton for sharing this video with us.
