Niall's family are 'devastated at her sudden death'.
News has emerged that Niall Horan's aunt Susan has passed away suddenly due to a heart attack.
Susan was married to Niall's uncle Paddy and her funeral is expected to take place on Wednesday 27th September.
It is hoped that Niall will be able to attend the funeral, with the 'Slow Hands' star currently in the middle of his 'Flicker Sessions Tour' in South America.
Niall had to cancel his tour date in Mexico due to the devastating earthquake and this fresh tragedy is another distressing moment for the One Direction lad.
According to reports, a funeral notice said that Susan would be “very sadly missed by her loving husband and daughter, her adored grandchildren Cillian, Eoin and Ciara, son-in-law Stephen, sister Sandra, brother Terry, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and friends.”
It remains to be seen whether Niall is able to fly home in order to attend the funeral and as yet he hasn't spoken out about the sad loss, but with his next tour date not scheduled until Sunday in Brazil, hopefully he'll be able to get there.
We're sending Niall and his family all the live rn.
