Greetings from Ennis, County Clare, Ireland

Hi Trusted housesitters and home-owners! I joined this site because I love to travel and am well steeped in the ways of house and pet sitting. Regardless of my current obligations, I am always looking forward to further explorations of this wonderful world of ours. I am an avid musician (with a Master’s degree in Traditional Irish Music) writer and landscape photographer.

I have had and/or looked after a wide variety of plants, pets, livestock, and rescued wildlife. I am, in general, a lover of animals; however, I do have a soft spot for cats and I’ve been told I have a particular knack with them by many of my house-sit hosts.

I look forward to meeting more of you as I undertake further sits and chat in forum.


Hello @owlcat and welcome to the community forum and to TrustedHousesitters.

If you are already a member of TrustedHousesitters, keep in mind that you can embed your sitter listing in your forum username/profile. It helps forum members get to know you a little better.

You may also want to edit your forum post title to add ‘Ireland’. Given this forum is worldwide, it will help others identify the country you call home. Funnily enough, for many of our members home just happens to be wherever they are on their current sit. :thinking:

Welcome owlcat. Your post brought back some wonderful travel memories for me when I visited Ennis in the 70’s for the music festival! I’m from Dublin originally and emigrated to Canada with my parents when I was young. A friend and myself travelled around Ireland for three weeks and Clare was one of our favorite places. I love traditional Irish music and one of my favorites is “The West Coast of Clare” by Planxty. I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful experience with THS.

Welcome Owlcat,
County Clare, in Ireland, is a part of the world which is a great place to visit, as did my husband Jeremy and I during a ‘round world trip a number of years ago. We managed to trace some of his Casey and McGrath relatives. You’ll love the THS community and hopefully you’ll be able to gift your cat whispering talents to a few privileged domestic felines over the next few years.
All the best, Carol from Sydney, Australia
P.S. Random fact: there are 5 countries around the world that have a city named Sydney! :roll_eyes: Sometimes I think my English ancestors were not too imaginative when they were naming places :rofl::rofl::rofl:
