New Irish website aims to give struggling families a lift in 2014

A brand new Irish website aimed at helping families achieve financial freedom has been set up by a mother and son duo from Co. Kilkenny. Geraldine and David Carroll came up with the idea for Winter Wisdom ( in late 2013 and this morning they launched the site to the general public.

“We’ve endured and witnessed a lot of hardship throughout our lives, particularly over the last few years with what’s happened to the economy. Winter Wisdom is our way of trying to help others achieve happiness and success” says Geraldine.

The site already has a number of helpful articles on topics such as dealing with debt, stress and what to do when faced with losing your home. There are also a number of useful tools, resources and tutorials for helping you manage your finances.

“We’re not financial experts” stresses David, “but we’ve lost jobs, lost homes, struggled with finances and yet always managed to keep our heads above water. We share our experience on the blog in the form of practical advice and lessons learned.”

Author and journalist Angela Doyle-Stuart had a sneak peek at the blog before launch: “It’s extremely well-written, engaging and informative. I could really connect with Geraldine’s writing and David has done a fantastic job on the website.”
