  • Description


    LAST MINUTE- Any workerawayer's already in Ireland and wanting come and live in East Cork. We're looking for someone to stay for 1 month from now until mid December.

    I'm a single Mum with an adorable little boy and a gorgeously daft dog. We live in a beautiful rural area in East Cork , approximately 2 fields from the nearest beach. Before COVID there was always lots of interesting things going on, never a dull moment. Now there is still interesting things happening but it's all very socially distant.

    My passions are food, music, travel, water sports, animals and gardening. My little boy likes to run a lot, throw balls, play with diggers and watch trains and trucks go by. My dog just wants to play fetch 24/7. He's lucky there are lots of people who throw things for him.

  • Help


    I would like to find someone who will primarily be helping mind my son during the week while I am at work.
    We welcome someone happy, fun and helpful. I'd ask you to go on walks with my little boy, play with him, help me prepare meals sometimes and do some light house work. He will be attending pre-school Mon-Fri every morning so you will need to be able to drive to pick him up from school.

    My garden could do with a complete overhaul too so if you'd like to help me with it that would be wonderful. I'm keen to get my son interested in food from a young age so where better to start than with the vegetable patch.
