  • Descripción


    I spent ten years working in finance and sales before understanding that the ity rat race wasnt for me. I am passionate about contributing to the world around me and that starts with my own attitude and back garden. I am an extrovert but need time alone. I like to read, walk my dogs, talk alot of rubbish and cooking good food.

    I myself left Ireland when I was 18 and travelled for 8 years before I came back with an understanding of how I wanted to live my life. So I understand what it is like to be a foreigner in another country ie the good times and the challenges. On the farm, you will learn about permaulture (beyond organic growing), tourism with rentals and working with livestock. The farm is located in a beautiful seeting with wonderful views and history. We are only an hour from Dublin and two from the Cliffs of Moher (west coast).

    I have started a permaulture project on my 11 acre farm where I grow my own vegetables and deliver to doorstep. I work with a newly regonised ancietn breed of goat and this spring will be our firsst big kidding.

    We have 20 does to kid which will be about 20 kids. 14 of these we expect to kid the first 3 weeks of April.

    I also rent rooms, one of whih you will stay. I am looking for someone who is keen to learn new things but also has skills in at least one of the above industies to help me start my businesses (delivery/website, goat farm, permaculture food forest) and who an work on their own initative.

    We are 3km walk from the nearest village Ballyroan, Abbeyliex is the nearest town and Portlaoise is the large regional town. From Ballyroan there are local buses to take you to portlaoise and Abbeyliex and from Portlaoise there are trains and buses going regularly to Dublin, Waterford, Galway, Tralee, and Cork. Abbeyliex is a beautiful heritage town and despite not being from the town ( I only moved here 2 years ago) people are the friendliest I have come across in Ireland, especially to visitors and tourists
