    Hi. My name is Valerie and we are a family of 3. I am a single mum and I live with my two boys, Lorcan who is 13 and Gabriel is 11. Lorcan started secondary school this year and Gabriel is still in primary school.

    We live in the beautiful seaside town of Dungarvan in South East Ireland. Dungarvan has its own fabulous beach, Clonea, and is surrounded by lots more. It has every possible sporting activity and club you could wish for - tennis, cycling, water sports, running club, hockey, rugby, gymnastics, music, etc. Dungarvan is famous for its restaurants and award winning chefs and has a vibrant nightlife. It is set at the foot of the Comeragh mountains so it is surrounded by amazing scenery and offers fabulous hill-walking opportunities. We are one hour from Cork City and 40 minutes from Waterford City and 2.5 hours from Dublin. There is daily bus service to these towns. There is also a language school in Dungarvan for anyone who would like to attend English classes. Dungarvan has lots of cycle tracks and we all have bicycles plus a spare one!

    I am an English secondary school teacher and this year I am studying for a Masters Degree too. The boys are busy with school and after school activities. Because I am on my own, I need someone to help out with boys in the morning getting boys out to school (making breakfast and school lunches) and also in the evening (giving them evening meal) and generally around the house. You would have lots of free time during the day as boys are at school. Obviously the boys are old enough so are not demanding at all. We are a very relaxed family but we are all very busy with work and activities.
