NEIL (CORNELIUS) HORAN A MAN ON A MISSION
NEW WORLD ORDER
Horan became more interested in prophecy and published an electronic book, entitled A Glorious New World Very Soon to Come, that predicted the end of the world. He published another electronic booklet along similar lines entitled A Glorious New World. Other works include Christ Will Soon Take Power From All Governments. According to Horan, in the Second Coming of Christ, Jesus will rule the world from Jerusalem and there will be two classes of people, “immortal saints” who will rule a world government for a millennium from the religious city and “mortal citizens” who will become “adopted Jews” and live for 900 years.
He was ordered by his church superiors to have psychiatric treatment in Killarney and in Harley Street. He was later sacked for using his sermons to “advance his sensationalist views”; he would later describe himself as a “Roman Catholic priest on sabbatical”.
July 20th 2003
Horan runs onto the track at the British Grand Prix with Jaguar’s Antônio Pizzonia fast approaching. Horan was wearing a kilt and waving a religious banner, which stated
“Read the Bible. The Bible is always right”.
He was tackled by a race marshal and arrested. He was charged with, and pleaded guilty to, aggravated trespass and sentenced to two months imprisonment.
EPSOM DERBY 5th June 2004
At the Epsom Derby, Horan was spotted by police and shoved to the ground moments before they believed he was about to run in front of the horses.
OLYMPIC MARATHON 2004
Horan pushed Brazilian Vanderlei de Lima, who was leading the race, into the crowds alongside the course.
He was carrying a placard which said:
The Grand Prix priest. Israel fulfillment of prophecy says the Bible, the second coming is near.
Horan was given a 12 months’ suspended sentence by a Greek court and fined €3,000.
Horan In Court; Indecent Assault 2 Sept 2004,
Horan appeared at Woolwich Crown Court on two counts of indecent assault, alleged to have taken place during the early 1990s. He stood trial from 25 October to 28 October 2004 The prosecution alleged that Horan had, between 1990 and 1992, indecently assaulted a 7-year old girl. The jury took less than an hour to acquit Horan of the charges. Horan went on to attempt to perform a traditional Irish jig outside the Old Bailey wearing his costume.
DEFROCKED 20 Jan 2005
Horan was formally defrocked by the Catholic Church. He was informed of the ruling at a meeting with the Archbishop of Southwark in London. Horan was quoted as saying,
“I completely reject this decision … I appeal to the much higher court of Heaven and the court of Jesus Christ.”
FIFA WORLD CUP 2006
During the World Cup in Germany, Horan was arrested by German police before he could stage a planned protest. He had written to the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, and The Kingdom newspaper in County Kerry, Ireland, informing them that he planned to dance a peace jig outside the stadium in Berlin before the World Cup final. He told The Kingdom that he would carry posters declaring that “Adolf Hitler was a good leader who was following the word of Christ”, give the Hitler salute and light a candle for Hitler at the Gestapo headquarters. He spent two months in custody awaiting trial but was released on 15 September 2006 when the judge discharged the case.
On 13 April 2007 Horan was served with an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) banning him from entering, on the day of the race, any of the London boroughs that the course of the London Marathon passed through.

Horan auditioned for Series 3 of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 performing an Irish jig in traditional costume. The judges put Horan through to the next round. It was revealed he was let through because the producers “did not know” who he was.
David Norris letter
During campaigning ahead of the 2011 Irish presidential election, Senator David Norris’s past, like those of the other six candidates, came under scrutiny. The Irish Times reported that it had seen a letter in which Norris had politely responded to Horan thanking him for his pamphlet on “various Messianic prophecies”. Norris admitted in the letter, “To be honest I haven’t really read it in detail yet”, but said that he would put his “feet up and read it with great interest” when he returned from a trip to Berlin. He added, “I will then pass it on to my aunt who is just 100 and has always taken a keen interest in this kind of material.”

“Queen Elizabeth is very probably foretold in the Bible” on the other.
He handed out his business card
“Neil Horan, the Britain’s Got Talent Irish Dancer. I perform at Weddings. My Mission in Life is to help prepare the world for the Second Coming.”
