About Our Family

Colm and I have taken a break in recent years from Intervac as our children were at college and came home for summer holidays. As they are now finished college and starting out on their own careers we are free to get back to Intervac. We had many good years of exchanging homes when the children were much younger and now look forward to doing the home exchanges on our own.
