GIRLS Aloud's Sarah Harding hit the tiles in Dublin over the weekend, but her bandmates were nowhere to be seen.

The pop star was flying solo as she enjoyed the St Patrick's weekend festivities without the rest of the girlband, including Irish member Nadine Coyle.

Sarah (31) performed at The O2 along with Nadine (27), Kimberley Walsh (31), Nicola Roberts (27) and Cheryl Cole (29).

However she was the only one willing to get in the spirit of all things Irish as she headed to Dawson Street on Friday night.

Sarah kicked the night off at restaurant Fire before making her way to celeb hotspot The Grafton Lounge.

No doubt pal Cheryl had told Sarah where to head. Cheryl and her boyfriend Tre Holloway partied the night away at the club last October after the Geordie girl's A Million Lights tour came to Dublin.

Sarah and the band's backing dancers seemed to be having the time of their lives.

"She looked like she was having a great night," an onlooker said.

"She was chatting with the dancers and they were all roaring laughing. They know how to have a good time."

And less than 24 hours later, Sarah gamely took to the stage at the O2 alongside her bandmates on Saturday night.

The girls were meant to play a second concert in Dublin on St Patrick's Day – but this was cancelled.

Officially, the band's management said the cancellation was due to "production transportation issues".

However, tickets for the band's 10th anniversary tour have sold below expectations.

Fans for yesterday's cancelled concert were able to go to Saturday's concert, and tickets were still available at the door on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, speculation is mounting that this will be band's final hurrah – and they want to go out with a bang.
