  • Description


    Retired couple, Geologist and Montessori School teacher, who reside in the countryside of West Cork, Ireland. We live in an old farm house, renovated on 1 acre of ground. We have a large garden and share our abode with a loving dog, cat and a myriad of birds. We are located approx 10 mins drive from local beaches and local villages. We are keen readers, conversationalists and lovers of music. David (My Husband) is a writer yet to be published. We both enjoy having company in our house as our children have now grown up and moved away. I am a vegetarian and enjoy baking delicious Irish soda bread and treats for visitors!
