    Description

    I have a few horses, between 3-5 at all times, a rescue dog Oscar (who is probably the most amazing dog ever ;)), the most hilarious puggle named Jackson ,a rescue border Collie and a cat called Georgie. I live relatively close to Ballinasloe (I commute in and out sometimes during the week or there will be a bicycle present if you are fit or some Workawayers are confident to hitch hike, entirely up to you) and commutable distance to Galway city via the bus. You will need to get a bus to reach Galway city (duration 40 minutes)

    Have also some building/DIY projects if there is anybody who has some experience in construction to help me out.

    I no longer work in an office and I am at home although I do laptop work in the mornings/some afternoons as I run a Digital media business and attend university 1 days per week.

    I am hardworking, have a busy life and I am motivated. I like to see those traits in people also. I have had some issues lately with money/objects being stolen from the house by a WorkAway volunteer. I work hard & really don't want this sort of trouble. I understand this really is the minority.

    This is not a good place to come if you do not like dogs. There are two house dogs and an outside dog who are part of the family.

    The place is small. We have a really nice Smart TV and top class fibre Wifi broadband.

    There are lots of home renovation tasks.

    Email me for more information.
