  • Description


    We have between 7 and 8 acres. We have 2 horses, cats and a hamster at present. We like to plant trees. I work at collecting and recycling cans covering a large area(mostly west of ireland). we like to grow a garden,organic.
    In the spring time we do a walk in a different part of ireland each year. we camp and cook on an open fire as we go along. we travel light and our motive is to call to see the kids in schools to give trees and raise awareness of the importance ot trees in our world. It is called the tree walk and has happened since 1996.
    We live in a quiet country area, not too far from the river and lough ree (cycling distance).
    I live with my 2 children sionna and fionn who are here a few days a week.
