  2. We have not travelled since 2019 due to Covid and now feel comfortable to holiday again as we are fully vaccinated and boosted, and hopefully Covid levels will fall in the summer months as they have done since the pandemic started. Ireland is one of the most vaccinated countries in the world per head of population with 94% of over 12s fully vaccinated (January 2022).

  3. We would love a house with outdoor patio and a pool.
