We have a farm in west of Ireland 30 minutes from Galway city. We need a strong capable person to help with some farm maintenance tasks. Essentially we need help tidying the farm and the farmyard, painting fences, and particularly helping us re build some stone walls which are unique in farms in the west of Ireland.
Ideally you need to be reasonably strong, and to have experience of farm work or maintenance work.
