Who we are

  1. We are a family of 5: Karen, Joe and 3 children aged 15, 13 and 11

  2. Karen is a scientist and Joe works in health and safety

  3. We like sports, travelling, crafts, movies, games (and some like gaming!) and some shopping (as long as there is a café break!). Joe and Karen met in Sydney and lived in Australia for several years before moving back to Ireland to get married and have the children. We love living in Northern Ireland as there are great people with lots of fun, lots to do and see and inexpensive compared to other places.
