  • Description


    I am a 62 year old lady living on the outskirts of a small town called Mitchelstown in Co. Cork.
    I live with my 20 year old daughter who is currently studying nursing.
    I work part-time in the kitchens of a local army base.
    My interests include gardening, cooking, art and a glass of wine here and there, especially here!
    I am looking for a live-in person to help me with my garden.
    I would love to organise it properly with someone who is knowledgeable in this field.
    Plenty of dinners and evening laughs are sure to be had!
    My daughter is leaving for America in early June so I can have guests from then until mid-August.

    My home is a small two bedroom semidetached in a small housing estate.
    All mod-cons with washing machine and dryer.
    Just 10 minute walk from local shops, pubs and entertainment.
    I am just 40 minutes from Cork city and there are wonderful bus services to areas all around.
    There are also wonderful caves just 15 minutes down the road.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Preferably non-smoker as there is no smoking allowed in the house.
    There are bus services to both Cork and Dublin directly from the town.
    Travel around Ireland would prove relatively easy if you wish to go to some tourist destinations.
