Working and Living in Northern Ireland

For those not familiar with Northern Ireland-

We are situated in the town of Downpatrick in South Down, an area of outstanding natural beauty, where the Mourne Mountains literally sweep down to the sea. The nearby Murlough Bay and Nature Reserve will be a very frequent visit for those who like wildlife and unspoiled nature. This area is great for hill walking and trekking, golf, canoeing and horse riding along with many other activities. There are good schools at all levels locally and Downpatrick itself is a busy provincial town with ancient history dating back to the Neolithic period. The town is also famous for being the base from where St Patrick himself in around 400AD carried out his ministry.
