I have 3 children, eldest girl, Emily is 14. My son, Ryan is 11 and our youngest daughter, Claudia is 10.
We have an equestrian property here in Ireland with 15 horses and ponies, so we spend alot of time outside. Our main focus is showjumping and we travel around ireland alot competing at the weekends. When not competing, we generally have fun, living in the "lake district" of Ireland there are many things to do like swimming, canoeing or paddle boarding. We also live beside the Greenway path which features miles and miles of safe cycling and walking paths. In the of peak season we can frequently take the horses to the beach where we gallop along the golden sands and take them swimming in the surf. On rainy days we travel to places of interest such as kilkenny castle, Viking sites and excavations. Wicklow is also a favourite destination for us to tour. and just generally having fun whether it is zip lining, laser tag, or bowling (although my husband is rarely beaten in bowling).
We have many animals here at the property, including 2 giant dogs and 2 smaller dogs. There are also cats and a resident gecko, Buddy so feeling lonely is never an option.
