His­tory lec­ture

Bray People - - Kilmacanoguediary -

THE Kil­macanogue His­tory So­ci­ety March lec­ture will take place on Tues­day March 3 in the Glen­cor­mac Inn at 8 p.m. Ti­tled ‘Bee­keep­ing in Ire­land past and present’ it will be pre­sented by Joe Kelly and prom­ises to be a most in­ter­est­ing lec­ture.

Joe, while re­sid­ing in Black­rock Co Dublin, has his api­ary in honey-rich County Wex­ford. He has been in­volved in bee­keep­ing since his early child­hood when he was in­tro­duced to the craft through help­ing his fa­ther with his bees.

He has been an ac­tive mem­ber in the County Dublin Bee­keep­ers As­so­ci­a­tion since 1964 and has served on the com­mit­tee as both mem­ber and of­fi­cer and is on the panel of lec­tur­ers of the ever pop­u­lar County Dublin Bee­keep­ers begin­ner’s course.

His talk will cover the de­vel­op­ment of bee­keep­ing in Ire­land and how it was in­flu­enced, par­tic­u­larly in the 19th cen­tury, by de­vel­op­ments abroad. If you need fur­ther in­for­ma­tion please con­tact 01-2804050.
