Our first lecture after the summer is on Wed 18 Sept in the Roanmore Centre at 7PM
The lecturer is Jim Ryan from Thurles. Jim is a beekeeper with 35 years experience and was former chairman of North Tipperary Beekeepers’ Association. Jim is currently the chairman of Galtee Bee Breeder’s Group
The topic is Wintering the Bees, looking back over the summer, preparing for winter and looking forward. Jim brings some of his own unique experience to the topic.
Jim is an interesting speaker and we hope to see many members on the night.
Our chairman Willy O’Brien will give a presentation on the Leader Funding project also.
Be thinking of topics/workshops you would like us to organise also.
FIBKA Gormanston Beekeepers’ Summer School runs Monday 12th August until Friday 16th August .
It is for Beginner, Intermediate and Senior Beekeepers or anyone wanting to learn more about beekeeping and to improve their knowledge of beekeeping.
It is a brilliant week with an array of speakers and demonstrations and there are lots of social events also. You will get talking to beekeepers from Ireland, England and further afield and everyone is willing to share their information There are plenty field demonstrations planned where you will need your beesuit.
You will find several suppliers of equipment there also.
You don’t have to go for the week. You can go for a day or two. The food is also good!
