    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are based in a culturally rich part of clare, plenty of trad sessions locally and irish traditional set dancing. I play the flute and my partner plays the fiddle. We are just a mile away from feakle, a hub of traditional music.

    Help

    Currently we are building an eco cabin and would love help doing interior fittings eg making kitchen shelves etc.
    We are looking for someone with some experience with wood to help with this, would need to be confident to help out alone at times and self initiate to a certain extent. We are hoping to get the cabin plumbed and fitted with a burner using a solar powered pump and an all off grid rain water system. this is the main project for september.
