A sneaky preview of The Sunday Times music millionaires List highlights just how crazy rich having boyband hair and a relatively in tune voice can make you. The Mullingar native One Direction member and teen heart-throb, Niall Horan, is number 4 in the Richest Musicians Under 30 list.
Niall and his One Direction bandmates are worth a staggering €17 million each, which is up by €11 million from last year. The band is, as they have been since their arrival on the scene following X Factor, still in the music charts with a hit single. Their current hit single is Story of My Life.
The annual rich list is part of the Sunday Times Music Millionaires Top 50. A number of other Irish artists also make the list, such as U2 who are number 6 with an estimated value of €516 million whereas Enya, who is worth €106 million is the 104th richest person in Ireland.
