This girl's tribute to Coppers as she leaves Dublin for Christmas will bring a tear to your eye

*standing ovation*

HEADING HOME FOR Christmas is one of the best times of the year – but it also has its drawbacks.

Take Mayo girl Deirdre Barry, who’s going to miss one place especially over the next couple of weeks and took to Instagram to pay tribute:

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

Coppers is where the heart is:

It’s an emotional send off:

Hang in there, Deirdre.
