My name is Mairéad,( a typical Irish woman's name). I am a part time tour guide and am studying Art currently. I enjoy outdoor activities; walking, swimming and gardening. Also, I love traditional music and set dancing and entertaining friends at home.
I am married to Tom and we have two adult daughters.
We live in a typical, traditional Irish village with good sporting amenities. It is also a good area for walking and cycling. There is a direct bus link on Saturdays from the village to the nearest large city, Limerick and we live near a train station with direct routes to Limerick, Dublin and Cork.
