Looking for an energetic, mature woman (preferably French speaking and over 25 years of age) to look after 3 lively school going boys long term - twins aged 8 and a 6½ years old who are big into sport and music and love learning French and about other cultures and people. As a separated, busy working mum, help would be required with housework and we would really love the opportunity to experience some of your culinary skills as well as sharing ours with you. I live in the West of Ireland in a lively town in East Galway about 20 minutes drive from Galway city - a city buzzing with activity during the summer months with various festivals and the Gateway to Connemara - a region renowned for its scenic beauty. If you are interested, I would love to hear from you.
