  • Description


    Hello! I am Tina, I am married to Mark, we have one boy Thomas, who is 18yrs old and a little 9yr old girl called Emily. We own and live on a Farm in the countryside in County Wicklow which is in the southeast of Ireland, where we take care of Horses, we have 120 acres of land and most of it has horses on it.
    I am a Natural Horse Trainer, and Mark is a software engineer. We are a happy go lucky family who likes to laugh. We also have a strong work ethic, so we try to take pride in what we do.
    We live in a 5 bedroom house with a lot of space around us. We have 2 cats, 2 dogs and 10 horses.
    We do not smoke and would appreciate a Non-smoker if possible. I suffer with a bad back so i am limited as to what i can do, bending and lifting are a problem for me, so i need help with that.
    Thomas is a mountain biking fanatic and loves working with farm machinery, Emily loves to sing and dance and is a little comedian.
    Who ever crosses her path will enjoy her company and have a good laugh. I have my own business on the premises, I work with horses and children with special needs. I am very busy and need someone to come and spend time with Emily and some light house work. Maybe even teach us how to cook food from your country!!!!

    We are only 7 minutes from Wicklow town. 50 mins from Dublin.

    My biggest thing that i need help with its house, I suffer with a very bad back so hoovering, making beds anything that involves bending or lifting i struggle with. So it would be such a massive help if we had a volunteer that loves to do house work . As we live on a farm the ground floor can carry in a lot of dust from outside. Then just a little bit of childminding for my little Emily.
