    Description

    Hello, I live on a 55acre farm in the foothills of the Comeragh mountains. I am looking for help from July to complete some construction jobs and some painting. I have a wooden clad bathroom to build, a shed to weather board and a storeroom and workshop to fit out in a loft.

    But there will be plenty of other things that can be done too. Such as helping with my breeding herd of Kerry Bog ponies, maintaining young trees, and some fencing and what ever else comes up. So lots of variety and opportunities to learn new skills and with a song in your heart you'll probably enjoy yourself here, even if the help is demanding sometimes.

    Your accommodation will be a caravan that has been recently restored and is comfortable but simple living. Good home cooked food will keep you and me going. Its a quiet location with amazing walks and views, about 9 miles from the town of Clonmel, Clonmel is a medium sized town that provides most things you want and is well connected by public transport to Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Waterford and places inbetween. Generally you can give you a lift if you want to get there. There is also a bicycle you can borrow to go exploring or get to the local villages if you like. Local people and neighbours are friendly and welcoming.

    Currently Ireland is welcoming visitors but requires everyone entering Ireland to identify where they will self isolate for two weeks. This is possible on my farm in the caravan as there are cooking facilities in it and it is located separately to where I live. I will provide you with the food you like. We can work together so long as we stay 2m apart and are careful. It would still be possible for you to explore the mountains and countryside so long as you don't enter buildings or get close to other people. As a result of these requirements I suggest that stays of three to four weeks would mean you'd get more from your stay with me.

    I have been a volunteer host for over 14 years. So I hope you'll find my farm welcoming. I have lived and farmed organically there for over 30 years and during that time have endeavoured to understand what sustainable living really means - a very complex subject! And to farm in a way that doesn't disturb the natural surroundings too much.

    The area around my farm is traditional rural Ireland. Being a hilly and mountainous area it has not been 'modernised' as much as other parts of Ireland. There is plenty to explore, castles, old cottages, Irish music, and craic in the pubs about. The farm is 20km from the beautiful rugged and beached coast, and Dungarvan the nearest town on the coast is an old harbour town and is on the edge of a Gaeltacht region
