Hello! I live in a beautiful part of County Wicklow at the foot of Carrick Mountain. Its about 50 min drive from Dublin, but longer by public transport, and many attractions in between; Mount Usher Gardens; Powerscourt House and Gardens. I am looking for help in the garden and home maintenance projects. But...
The accommodation is in Avoca at my Mother's cottage with my supervision and co-ordination. It's not far from Avoca village; the Meeting of the Waters; Avoca Woollen Mills and very close to the Woodenbridge Hotel and Aughrim if you are interested in Irish traditional music you'll find plenty of it.
I am a musician - a singer and very interested in growing and preserving food, natural medicine and such. My Mum lives alone since my Dad passed last April and could use both assistance and company.

Help around the house
My Mum is Australian. You will learn anything and everything you want to learn because I can facilitate you. I am actively attending workshops on natural healing, nutrition and often attend groups which may be of interest to you. These are musical and cultural too. There is plenty of traditional Irish Music performed in the locality which is well worth the experience!
I really need help digging garden beds, clearing overgrown areas, weeding, some painting (need experience here) and someone good with a drill. Also indoor projects like sorting and organising; preparing dinners; cleaning windows (yeah, sorry!).
My Mum could use help with simple projects like arranging her photo albums, processing apples from her trees.
Bedroom with bathroom.
I can assist with transport to nearest village/bus/train, and take you to local pubs for the traditional music. If I am due to go to an event I will offer it to you. For example I took our last Workaway to the Dublin to see an exhibit that I was attending.
Our workaways need to have excellent English, because of my Mum's hearing.
I would like to chat with you via Zoom before making arrangements.
