We are a family of three plus. My husband John, our son Darragh and myself Margaret ( not forgetting our dogs). We are a caring ,loving family. We love spending time together going on many trips,but also like our quiet time. We work great as a team and its very much "we all dirty the house, we all clean it"and we will encourage you to get involved too. One of us will always be at home to welcome you after a school day or trip.
We are a sporty family and my husband is coach to our local GAA Club ( hurling & gaelic football) . We go dog walking in the countryside,swimming in our local Leisure Centre .There are many local clubs you can get involved in and we have no problem driving you there. Our son is also a member of the local soccer team where the Management and coaches made you feel very welcome . We enjoy our movie night in together especially on a cold night with a lovely open fire,and some goodies.
Our experience of hosting has being very positive. We have learned a lot about different cultures and traditions from our extended family.It has being a pleasure watching our students develop their English Language and gain confidence to integrate into our Country, Community and Family . We have enjoyed our time together and some wonderful memories and friendships have developed . What great pleasure we got just this year in seeing both our students take home to Germany and Spain medals they won as being part of our local Soccer Club.
We don't mind really hosting the same nationalities. We have no preference either way. We could facilitate 4 students , but 3 would have to share in the one room.
100% . We are available to host academic students for our local secondary school . Our Ladys Secondary School Templemore Co Tipperary .
