Bill works as a General Manager in Research and Elspeth works as a PA. We have a tiny cat named Ohio and two chickens and some tropical fish, in our main house and another 2 dogs and 3 cats in small house.
The time would be spent between both houses and someone that is used to having animals around is a must.
The main home is a beautiful, private, period residence overlooking the sea in Cork Harbour, with extensive garden and these require lots of work.
The smaller house is a brick built 130 year old house with lovely trees and small but private garden.
