Eimear is currently studying in university and comes home at weekends. Milly is our family pet dog, lives in the house and is extremely loving. She does not shed hair. Denis (host dad) works as a Lorry driver and is away from home during the week. Marion (host mum) cares for children out side the home two days a week. We enjoy going for walks after our days work and the occasional shopping trip.We have been hosting students for 8 years from all over the world. We have enjoyed each and every student . Many of them have returned on holiday and still keep in touch. Our current student is with us for her second year. She is completing her schooling in Largy College, clones, Co Monaghan. She is like a daughter to us.Dietary requirements can be catered for as I have had students in the past with special diets. I encourage students to use their own culinary skills. I make my own brown bread and scones. We cook healthy meals and encourage healthy eating.We encourage our students to invite along their school friends to our home for a movie evening and a sleep over if they wish. We are a very easy going family. We look forward to welcoming our new students every year, you will be looked after very well, treated like our ownchildren. Our home will be your home. We understand that it can take a student a little while to settle into a new home far away from their own home. This we will help you with.
