Honey Harvest 2019

Some shots from our Honey Harvest,  early September. We had the pleasure of showing DJ Monica Hayes from KCLR the ropes at the apiary.  She recorded the lot, and made a fantastic short documentary on it for her show.

Bees at the National Ploughing Champs 2019

What an unbelievably busy and well-run event! There was great interest in the bees and in beekeeping at the FIBKA (Federation of Irish Beekeepers Associations) tent. With 2 observation hives, it wasn’t hard to keep people interested in the bees. We also did 2 talks, one at the ICA stage and at inCarlow stage… well done all!

A great day all round was had at the Taste of Carlow Food and Craft Fair 2014. Large crowds descended on C.B.A’s stall for the chance to spot a queen bee in action, and a jar of local honey. The word was well and truly spread about Carlow Beekeepers Association; we even had a quick television interview with Irish TV!
