The owners of three rental cottages on Great Blasket Island have been “inundated” with queries about a caretaker vacancy on the Co Kerry island, according to Extra.ie.

The “unique” job position advertised on the Great Blasket Island Twitter account calls for two people — a couple or two friends — for the long-term management of accommodation and a coffee shop on the island between 1 April and October this year.

Lucky applicants will be required to service the cottages as well as serve tea and snacks at the adjacent café during the often busy tourist season. Extra.ie has more on the story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
