  • Description


    We are a family of 3 including a daughter of nearly 11 years. As Husband works away from home we need help to drop her to school at 08.15 approx and collect her at 14..30 hrs about 3 or 4 days a week. Her school is 1.7 miles away from the house and the bus passes outside the door very regular. If possible maybe do her homework with her and If you are interested in earning money we will pay you for doing some light housework , but this is not essential.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cork is a city rich in culture. There are libraries, museums, theatres , art centres eg Crawford Art gallery. Places to visit include The English Market (made very famous by queen’s visit), Spike Island, Butter Museum, Cork City Gaol to name but a few. There are plenty pubs/bars including the Frisky Whiskey Bar (specialises in whiskey ) and Sin ē ( Irish for “that is it”) hosts tradition Irish music sessions. I am not sure with COVID if these sessions are on every night. And of course in October we have the Jazz festival.
