    TWO MONTH MINIMUM - PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL IF YOU CAN'T STAY AT LEAST 60 DAYS : I'm a very active 65 year old living in the countryside and could use a helping hand with some gardening and housework. I have 8 grandchildren but none of them live with me, although two live close by. I live on a farm that my son works on, but he is in Dublin during the week and comes down on weekends. I have an active social life and enjoy going to horse races, card games (21 and poker) and greyhound racing. I have dogs that need looking after when I'm not around and a workawayer would give me the freedom to leave for a couple of days, something I find I can't do too easily at the moment because of leaving the dogs. You in return would get a very authentic Irish experience and meet lots of people from the countryside. Dublin is only an hour away by bus, and we are four miles from the town of Enniscorthy.

    You'd meet lots of new interesting people. I have a busy house here and people are always coming through. You could travel Ireland on the weekends and your days off and even help with some babysitting hours if you were interested from my daughter closeby.
