We are a family of 3 myself and 2 teenage boys 13 an 15 we live in the countryside in county cavan we are an active famly that like to be outdoors as much as possible, there is a lake a few moments walk away from the house that is stocked with lots of course fish, and a great location for watersports, our home is in a rural area so if you like the countryside and wildlife its the place for you, We regularly host exchange students to help them with English lessons.
We will offer you a comfortable room, with access to bathroom kitchen, lounge internet washing machine etc. We will provide meals & room, in exchange for 4 hours of manual work per day, 5 days a week (inside or outside) such as some teen supervision, gardening, DIY, fuel collection, cleaning, dog walking, helping with shopping, house minding or other tasks as needed. Outside your 4 hours per day, you will also engage in HELPING at dinner time, family shopping, dog walking, fuelling fire etc. ... As part of the family if you stay at home at weekends or days off, be prepared to help with dinner, fuel collection or dishes after meals like other members of the family.

my eldest son Ewan has a very rare type of muscular dystrophy that restricts hi mobility and walking some, he is mobile but tires very easily, but this does not stop him living life to the full and doing things that he enjoys, He is a qualified beekeeper with the Irish beekeeping assosiation and currently has 2 thriving hives, that he attends to, (so if you have alergies to beestings you must be aware of this) Ewan is at the moment preparing an area in a little wooded part of the garden to put an aipery there, he is trying to make it as eco friendly and bee friendly as possible and could do with some help on the physical side of this and with planting too.
Oran is a typical 13 year old likes sports and is very keen on wildlife and out door survival skills, also he can tend to be a bit lazy and needs constant kicks in the bum (not litrally) to do his homework and tidy his room. he enjoys any practical projects and would be hapy to learn any skills that you have to share with him, DIY projects woodwork metal work building.
