With choice lyrics like:

And every make of person, comes stumbling through the door
You’ll find teachers, nurses, farmers, jersey pullers by the score
It’s the only place that country folk and Dubs get along
Cos they’re all so feckin’ hammered, happy out and singing along

8. When it got a massive shoutout on one of the biggest stages of all


Hence the glorious caption, above.

11. When this girl wrote a loving tribute to leaving Coppers for Christmas break

I sit here languishing in sorrow, a mere shell of my former self, absolutely refusing to give credence to the idea that I am 'home'. For they say that home is where the heart is, and never have I been so acutely aware as to where mine resides; deep within the walls of 29-30 Harcourt Street. Memories, all happy ones, surround me, overwhelm me, like a warm blanket on a bitterly cold night, reminding me of times in my life when I have been very content indeed. At this moment in time, I'd go as far as to say that I would actually consider putting two bullets in a family member, if it meant that I could have another classic Chooseday night in paradise before 2015 signs off. Our reunion in January 2016 will be sensational, of that I'm sure. #TeamCoppers #ThePromisedLand #homeiswheretheheartis #coppers #love
