  • Description

    Description

    We are a busy family of 4, Dad-Liam, Mum-Caroline, and energetic 5 and 3 year old boys.

    Liam works full time and I work part time. We both enjoy swimming, walking our dog and mountain biking.

    We have a field next to the house with hens, a polytunnel and we are hoping to get pigs soon (once we have built a house for them!). We also have a (mainly outdoor) cat.

    We would love someone to come and join our family to be an extra pair of hands. Interest in doing outdoor stuff would be great. Our polytunnel needs some time and there in lots of grass to cut in the summertime.

    Our 3yo is at pre school (5 mornings a week) and 5 yo is at school. I would love you to help when we are at home and occasional school collections.

    We are a short walk from a lake and castle and we often drive to the woods or beach for walks and adventures.

    We are under an hour from Cork city and quite centrally located within West Cork. We are a short drive from Clonakilty, Rosscarbery, Skibbereen and Bandon all of which have lovely attractions.

    We would love someone to come and join our family to be an extra pair of hands.

    The boys love playing, reading and being outside. They are very kind and will look after you well! We have a great playroom, a trampoline (big enough for adults too!) and a fantastic huge garden.

    We also have a 1.5 acre field that we want to develop (pigs, hens, polytunnel) so we would be delighted if you are also interested in spending time outdoors or have experience with vegetable growing.

    Light housework and cooking would also be helpful but not essential and our dog and cat would be delighted to get a bit of extra attention.
