    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    I have been volunteering in the environment, gardening, forestry, animal welfare and rural tourism sectors, since 1987. I can provide references from.a cross section of these activity areas. In addition I am a published writer and competent and creative photographer.
    I grew up in Ireland as a teenager as my father and grandfather were Irish. Of recent years I have increasingly felt an affinity with Ireland and wider Celtic culture. I am applying for my Irish citizenship currently.
    I am a peaceable yet passionate person, with a nature that is optimistic, but in a grounded way.
