Dooagh beach, Achill Island,  County Mayo before (top) and after (above) April storms that deposited sand back on its strand for the first time since 1984

For decades they had to beseech
The ocean to give back their beach
Now those in the west
Are finally blessed
And once more their life is a peach

The winner of Home Of The Year
Should be feted with a hearty cheer
But viewers were bitter
And angry on Twitter
And said it was far too austere.
