  • Description


    We are a family living in County Monaghan near to County Cavan, living in the beautiful countryside. We are busy at this time of year lambing and also busy with calving with our suckler herd. We mainly need help with our new Free Range Poultry venture where we pack eggs every day, it's a new enterprise recently set up. We would also need help with a little house work. It's a very scenic area and lovely now coming into the Spring. We are a family of five but one of our sons is working away, with my husband, son (the main farmer) and daughter and I. We have a friendly golden Retriever dog, a cat and a donkey. We enjoy sport and getting out and about. I enjoy home cooking and will be happy to share traditional dishes we have. We are a caring family and enjoy learning about other cultures. I enjoy art and craft activities. We are not vegetarians , but happy to provide for different dietary requirements. We have a non smoking home and would like those who stay with us to respect house rules. We will make welcome anyone who is interested in coming to stay with us.
