  • Description

    Description

    My name is Rónán , im 35 years old .I live on a farm in Co. Longford. I have been involved in lots of different courses including organic vegetable growing , holisic therapies , 3D cad design and cnc carving in wood. I have a passion for music and my house is full of instruments , i do music production in my spare time. I have a 48ft x 21ft polytunnel which i recently landscaped and is very low maintainance , but still would be nice to get help in , i had been working full time as a cnc operator in a precision engineering company but have been on leave due to an injury. I am very much a DIY person , constantly teaching my self new skills , i work with computers alot either doing music production or 3D design work for projects . I live alone with my cat , i really like the peace and quiet where i live , been here for 10 years , moved from Dublin originally , to start an organic farm , i moved more into art and technology over the years and now only grow food for myself,i worked in art departments in commercial projects for a time .
    I enjoy creating most of all. I used to take volunteers (organic farm volunteers) before when i was growing veg to sell, i really enjoyed those experiences and had a lot of fun working with different people from around the world . I am patient and happy to share any skills i can, i have confidence in peoples abilities and help them grow .
