    For the month of September I need someone to help with building a wooden structure. General help around on the land, planting, weeding, making paths and some help inside the house, painting and general maintenance. Once a month I leave for a few days to work in the city and would need you to feed the animals and walk the dogs.

    There are wonderful walks into the hills that run past my home. The town is close by, has a few cafe's, restaurants, pubs, supermarket. There is live music in town in various places. There is a large Buddhist centre about 1/2 hour away. There are buses that run to Cork city, which is 2 hours away though they are not so frequent. The area around here has many very ancient sites to be seen and beautiful coastal walks.
