Viewers were overcome with emotion as they tuned into Baz Ashmawy’s new show, DIY SOS.
The programme, which aired on RTE last night, saw a group of volunteers help renovate a home, after an accident left teenager Amy Mulcahy wheelchair bound.
She could no longer sleep in her upstairs bedroom, had to move into the family living room, and struggled to move through her Limerick abode.
In just under two-weeks, Baz and the team transformed the home, leaving the Mulcahy family, and viewers alike, blown away.
People from all over the country flocked to social media, sharing their praise and adoration:
