  • Description


    Im a mother of a 7 year old girl and im looking for extra help for 4 weeks ,September 13- October 15, with possibility of more time if required. We have a small beautiful dog to keep you company also. My daughter is a very pleasant creative child, who for the most part is really easy and enjoyable to be around. She loves company and meeting new people and loves to play with her friends also. This really wouldnt be too stress full I promise you. I need extra help over the few weeks as her other caregiver will be away.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live in a beautiful historic town my the sea in Ireland, and within walking distance of the town. The town is steeped in history and is within 30 mins of Cork City. There are many different facilities in the town for someone interested in history and also Irish culture with traditional music nights in the local pubs. Also my daughter is a Gaelic speaker and loves to teach people her native language. Her father is a traditional Irish boat builder and regularly takes groups to sea in these vessels providing boating skills in his native Gaelic Language. There would be opportunity to avail of this also.
