One Direction announce the first dates of their world tour at a press conference in London's Wembley Stadium yesterday.

The tour includes a date in Dublin's Croke Park next May. Watch some of the day's events at Wembley here. Oh and is it just our imagination or does that Nialler bloke do most of the talking?

After speaking to the world's media (including RTÉ Ten), the footie mad boyband headed out onto Wembley's hallowed pitch and donned the national strips of the countries they'll visit on their global jaunt.
