Amongst the attendees were members of the Ireland rugby team fresh from their Six Nations victory against Wales on Saturday, including Bundee Aki, Robbie Henshaw and Conor Murray.

And what better way to celebrate than by hanging out with Niall himself?

Conor’s wife, Joanna couldn’t help but share a glimpse into their night of celebrations as they partied backstage with Niall.

“The show was so good though,” she added alongside a photo of the man of the hour on stage.

But first, they enjoyed a bottle of bubbles and chocolate dessert at the Westbury Hotel in Dublin city centre.

The model was also joined by fellow rugby WAG Sophie Marren, who is set to wed Robbie Henshaw in the near future, along with Jack Conan’s wife Ali Cunningham.

On Friday night, Niall welcomed fellow Irish singer and pal Dermot Kennedy onstage as a special guest.

“Something that I’ve always thought, and especially over the last sort of ten years – Irish music is in unbelievable shape.

“We’ve some of the best singer-songwriters on the planet, because cause we like to tell a story. There are not many who can tell a story like this man,” he added.

“He is one of our absolute finest. Could you please welcome onto the stage… Mr Dermot Kennedy.”

The pair then duetted on Kennedy’s track, Outnumbered.
