  • Description

    Description

    I live in a beautiful rural area at the foot hills of the Slievebloom mountains. My cottage was built early 1800, and I am continually working to improve garden and house. I have 2 dogs and one now seemingly rehomed dog!!!!He never left!!!
    Very historical area close to double ringed fairy fort, a national monument of heritage.Also my cottage overlooks the most haunted castle in Ireland, Leap Castle.
    I am a very easy going person who likes meeting new people, I have worked with horses all my life and sill have two of my own, and ocassionally go driving with the little cob "Luigi". I like music and love all animals.
    I need help with painting , house cleaning and animal care, looking after chickens, dogs and garden. At present I need to clear a field of Ragworth so would need people to pull and gather it in the field.
