The family: Dale, Biddy, Blanaid, Wesley, Ger
Hello! my name is Biddy and I'm Wesley, Dale and Blanaid's mother. I look after the younger people who come to my house. I have been taking care of children in my home for over 10 years and really enjoy it! We treat all visiting children like one of our own family, we eat together, do activities together and always have a bit of fun. My other occupation is as a counsellor-therapist and I am also a qualified EAGALA therapist.
Ger runs the family farm and is an experienced TEFL teacher. His hobby is classical music and plays his music on a local radio show every Wednesday night, he also does a current affairs programme on Friday mornings on East Limerick Radio.
Wesley is my oldest boy, born in 1986, and he runs the Equestrian Centre. He is a certified BHS (British Horse Society) instructor and a Ride Leader in Equestrian Tourism. He is also a qualified EAGALA therapist. Like the rest of the family, Wesley grew up riding horses and has a lifetime of experience jumping, trekking, show jumping and cross country.
Dale is the clever one of the family and is currently studying electronics engineering in college. He is one of our TEFL teachers and during his spare time he helps out at the equestrian centre. He is also on the road to becoming a qualified BHS instructor.
Blanaid is our youngest and she loves meeting all the new people that come to our house. She helps to make any new student feel comfortable and will correct their English if they make a mistake! Her ambition is to be a professional show jumper and she practices as often as she can.
All of the adults in the family have gone through the Gardai vetting process (police vetting), have studied child protection and there are three child officers on the staff.
In our family garden we have dogs, cats, pigs, hens, goats and sheep (none of the animals are allowed in the house).
Our address: Boskill Equestrian Centre, Caherconlish, Co. Limerick ireland.
