Hi my name is Rita. This is my home town where I was born and went to school. I am very lucky to come from such a beautiful part of the world. On one side I got the most beautiful beaches in Ireland and on the other the very famous Croagh Patrick, locally know as "the Reek." I lived in London for many years but as the saying goes, there is no place like home. One of my favourite things to do is walk the beach in all types of weather. I climb Croagh Patrick regularly also. I am still amazed when I reach the top and there is no fog as the views are truly amazing. I have put up some pictures for you to see. I also like to play badminton in my local community centre weekly. I look forward to welcoming you into my home and will do all that I can to make your stay a good one.
