About us:

We are a family of five - Frank (Manager), Judith (Art teacher/milliner) and  three children  10 and 7 year old boys and a 4 year old girl. We are seeking to houseswap in Ireland over August/Sept - Dec 2012 to enable our children to go to school for a term and discover their heritage.  Their mum (Judith) is Irish but emigrated to Australia 20 years ago and we are all interested in basing ourselves in Ireland for a great experience.
