    Good Host
  • Description


    We have a small farm in beautiful country four miles from Sligo town. Guy lectures in the local college and I am an artist working from home. We also run the local farmers market, you are not asked to help with this. We have two girls away from home and Isaac who is 13. We have cattle sheep dogs cats ponies and poultry and live a busy but fulfilling life. At the moment we could do with some help in the garden tidying up before winter. Also would like some help with making an aviary and repairing an old boat.
