Who we are

  1. I (Fiona) am a secondary school teacher and my husband Liam is a Civil Engineer. We have 2 boys aged 11 and 8 who are sports mad like their Dad. We have swapped our house previously with friends in Ireland and as that worked out so well we have decided to venture further away. We would be happy to correspond via email in advance with those who we exchange our home with in order to ensure that they get the most out of their visit.
