Thanks to all who came to our AGM on Thursday. We’re delighted to welcome our new members who signed up. Our new committee was also elected, and we look forward to planning an active and fun-filled 2019! Huge thanks to Mary Coffey of Teagasc for her very interesting talk on bee diseases and treatment.
The Beekeepers are at it again, making an attractive trap-hive in the beautiful Carlow countryside! It’s a work in progress, and we’ll post a mini-vid of the action soon. It’ll hopefully be irresistable to a swarm, and the lucky bees can thank Carlow beekeeper Shane Kavanagh for constructing their cosy new pad!
(*don’t try this at home!!)
Thanks to Offaly Beekeeping Association for giving us a lovely warm welcome in Tullamore this evening. Dr. Saorla Kavanagh’s lecture offered fascinating insights into her now world- famous Heather Honey research.
… and of course Anne grabbed a photo-op afterwards with Dr. Kavanagh, and FIBKA’s Ken Norton and Michael Gleeson! 😁
The Carlow Beekeepers are in the news again! Michael Tracey from The Nationalist chats with our chairperson John Blanche…
