Need helpers
Myself and Barry moved to Ireland from England 19yrs ago and decided to stay and raise our family here. We run a home and family and we grow willow for basket making , We run basket making courses every month and have lovely groups come and weave for the day.

Barry is a skilled basket maker and gardener by trade he is very creative and i work part time . Sarah is a massage therapist and works p/t with people with learning difficulties.We have a big vegetable garden and polytunnel and have cats and our lovely dog. We have four children under 24 years of age,full of love for life. We have a single and double room ,log cabin .sometimes a campervan if required. We would love helpers to help with gardening, willow cutting and grading, animals and general jobs. Help build decking around our log cabin and help with compost lol,Help with cooking and cleaning or decorating is great too. We like organising hours on a week block so you would do 30 hours in a week us being very flexible at what days and times. We believe communication is very important so everyone gets on well and has a lovely experience. We love playing music, cycling and canoeing ,boating and hill walking. We have bikes and guitars you can use and maps of our local area for you to explore. You can explore Galway, Limerick, Cork, Dublin and
Athlone by all local transport. We live 1 mile from a small village and 5 miles from 3 towns, Banagher, Birr, Portumna. There are plenty of monastic sites in the area so if you like stonework or old Ireland you will love, Birr Castle & Gardens & Museum, Clonmacnoise, Portumna castle and lough Derg. We are an active and social family and love playing guitars and relaxing . We love to have friends over and light fires outside. Really hope you enjoy your visit in Ireland.
