Hello my name is Kate . I live in a lovely rural slightly inland countryside area midway between Ardrahan
and the small coastal harbour town of Kinvara. I am currently employed in financial services. I have a keen interest in local and national history , irish music song dance and sport. I enjoy a country lifestyle and spend any spare time in the garden. I have great pride in my country all things Irish and a special love of my native area. Combining the country living with a city job you could say it's like ' having the best of both worlds '
