Fresh Eggs and Dog Beds: Living the dream in rural Ireland
Nick and Lesley Albert yearn to leave the noise, stress and pollution of modern Britain and move to the countryside, where the living is good and there is space for their dogs to run free. Suddenly out of work and soon to be homeless, they set off in search of a new life in Ireland, a country they have never visited.
As their adventure begins to unfold, not everything goes according to plan. If finding their dream house is difficult, buying it seems almost impossible.
How will they cope with banks that don’t want customers, builders who don’t need work, or the complex issue of where to buy some chickens?

Who is Nick Albert?
Nick Albert was born and raised in England. After a hectic career as a training consultant and sports coach, Nick, and his wife, Lesley, decided it was time to leave the stress of city life behind. In 2004 they made the sudden decision to begin a new life in rural Ireland – a country they had never before visited. There they bought a dilapidated farmhouse, and with the aid of a second-hand do-it-yourself manual, began renovations on their new home.
When the refurbishments to the property and their lives were complete, Nick began writing full-time.
