The competition is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. Shortlisted entrants will be contacted via their social media account shortly, so keep an eye on your Facebook and Twitter messages.

Last month, The Irish Times named Westport as The Best Place to Live in Ireland. But what if you’ve had to emigrate and no longer live in Ireland? We are now inviting the Irish abroad to share the reasons they love where they live, no matter where in the world they are.

How to enter: In the comments section below, tell us in no more than 150 words about the view from your window, the community around you, the culture and customs you have come to love, or anything else that makes you feel lucky to be where you are. Entries will be accepted until noon Irish time on Monday July 16th. Note: you must be logged in to comment.

The prize: The winning entry will receive a €500 airline voucher. A selection of entries will be published in The Irish Times on Friday July 20th.
