State Visit

Niall Horan met President Higgins and Twitter was very confused


PRESIDENT MICHAEL D Higgins attended a musical event called Ceiliúradh at London’s Royal Albert Hall last night, as part of the State Visit to the UK.

It was quite the night.

As part of it, President Higgins invited Niall Horan of One Direction, aka Mullingar’s most famous export, into his presidential box.

He even got an official photo with him.

And Twitter was a bit conflicted that Niall Horan got to hang out with the Prez.

Some people didn’t understand it:

Some people were happy for Niall:

And some people had their own theories.

(We don’t know if Niall got to meet Enda Kenny, because he was busy having the LOLz with John Major.)
