    Description

    My wife and I live in County Cork Ireland about 30 minutes from Killarney and 45 mins from Cork city. We have a 4 acres of woodland , a poly-tunnel and a vegetable garden One small dog and a cat. We are vegetarians and non smokers. We also have a pottery workshop but this is only semi functional since my wife suffered a brain injury last year. ( She is recovering but is still not able to do a variety of activities)
    We can offer a caravan for accommodation and vegetarian meals .I also can help with English as I am an English teacher.
    I am looking for someone to help out with general tasks on the land, ( they need to be reasonably strong) collecting felled firewood, as well splitting and stacking it. I also need help with gardening and general household jobs. 4 hours a day and 2 days off a week ( Doesn’t have to be weekends)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live fairly close to some beautiful hiking country around Killarney and the South west and there is a good bus connection to both Cork and Killarney
    We live a fairly quite life ( a bit too quiet for me) and since my wife’s brain injury she needs a lot of rest and quiet time but also some social stimulation as well in small quantities Someone who is sensitive but up beat and energetic would really help us out a lot at the moment
