Irish celebrities Niall Horan and Saoirse Ronan have been named on Heat's annual list of the 30 most minted celebs aged 30 and under
The Bronx-born Ronan has had a successful acting career since she was a young girl. Her breakout role in 2007's 'Atonement,' at the tender age of 12, earned the young star her first Academy Award nomination.
Heat writes: "The acclaimed Irish actress has picked up four Oscar nominations over the years for movies such as 'Brooklyn', 'Lady Bird' and 'Little Women.' Saoirse (pronounced Sur-sha) lives a largely non-glitzy life, but recently bought a plush £2.5m Victorian home in London with boyfriend Jack Lowden – the 'Dunkirk' actor who’s tipped to be the next James Bond."
Co Westmeath native Niall Horan was one of four former One Direction members to make the list in the top five.
According to Heat, the Irish musician "earned a fair whack bouncing around as a floppy-haired cherub in 1D. He’s also issued three big-selling albums (the latest, The Show, went to No1 in the UK and No2 in the US) and performed sell-out world tours.
"Earlier this year, Niall debuted as a coach on The Voice US, which is expected to net him £6m a series. The golfing nut also set up Modest! Golf Management company as part of his plans to turn the sport from a hobby for old rich blokes into one with 'more teenage girls involved.'. It made £177k last year, but watch this space...
As for how the pop star spends all that dough, Horan has proven to be generous with his earnings. Heat adds: "The very first thing Niall did with his 1D pocket money was pay off his mother’s mortgage. Has homes in London and LA, while he also donates to charitable causes (he gave £87k to a charity supporting elderly through COVID)."
Horan's former 1D mate Harry Styles, 29, was the top earner on the list at £175m, followed by Dua Lipa 28, with £82.5m. Liam Payne and Zayn Malik, also both former 1D members, round out the top five.
