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. Visit the link below to listen to it! https://kclr96fm.com/documentary/harvesting-honey/
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!
