"I once said that for the first audition, ‘I packed everything in my life in a bag.’ That’s completely true. But what I didn’t realize at the time when I was stuffing clothes into my little suitcase was that, pretty much, I was leaving home for good. After One Direction got put together, I was shuttling between Ireland and England for the rest of the show. Then it was The Judges’ Houses and on to the live finals, after which I went home one more time, re-packed the suitcase… and I haven’t lived in Ireland since. It was a case of grabbing some clothes, slinging my guitar over my shoulder and off I went."
