Mary worked for many years in the pharmaceutical/healthcare industry as a Business Development Manager in Dublin before relocationing from the hectic pace of life in Dublin to the more relaxed pace here in Waterford - now does some part time consultancy /training/lecturing Marketing, Business Development. Gerard is A CEO of an Education Group based in Waterford. We have 2 sons - Oisin (16) and Daragh (12). We would love a family to experience the great scenery, amazing friendliness and hospitality we have experienced since our move down. We have a white lab who will be cared for while we are away. Our first home exchange in 2008 was with a Canadian family and we spent 3 fantastic weeks just outside of Toronto. They loved their trip to Ireland and their time in Waterford. We are open to any location - surprise us!!!
