    We would really appreciate volunteers to help mainly with minding & walking our dog & cat in July. And also to do gardening and general DIY / painting. There is a beautifull stoney beach at the bottom of our road, 5 mins walk where the dogs can be walked to each day. Leaving ample time the rest of the day & days to peruse the local attractions or hang with our family or carry out any adhoc tasks around the place. The dogs are 2 small easy going terriers.
    Volunteers need to be animal lovers and have own pets and experience handling animals. Driving licence an advantage. Allot of trust will be placed with any volunteer. Accomodation will be a comfy single bed. Volunteers will be welcomed as if at own home and experience welcoming Irish hospitality.

    The local bus will stop at our village, and leads to any connecting transport to go anywhere. But we're happy to give use of a vehicle or drive a volunteer.
