I’ve told you a little about Rachel above, who will be your primary responsibility, but each of the other children are uniquely endearing. Young Oliver is smart, sweet, sensitive and logical too. Louise, the eldest, is a natural performer and enjoys dance and gymnastics and has a great sense of humour. The household is busy, fun-loving and well-organised. It’s a positive environment, a nice home in a nice part of Dublin. The work is really varied and very, very rewarding.” (Maria)
