Childminder required

My husband and I moved with our two young children from Kanturk to Cullen. We would like to transfer our children to Cullen National School from September 2021, but due to our professions, we need a reliable child minder to mind our children before school or after school. Our children are aged 8y and 5y old. The childminder needs to be from Cullen area.

Garda vetting is a must and references are welcomed.
