Wexford, in the sunny south-east, has traditionally been a honey producing area. The County Wexford Beekeepers' Association is one of the oldest in the country, founded as it was in 1885 approximately.
From the 1960s onwards, the Teagasc Institute in Clonroche carried out research and education programmes about beekeeping, which was of great help in advancing beekeeping practices among the beekeepers of Wexford.
Currently, our association has about 70 members, both beginner beekeepers and members with many decades of experience.
Membership costs 70 euro for a year. This includes a six week beginners' course which is held in spring every year and includes a practical. Check our blog for details of the next beginners' course.
Our association is also affiliated with the Federation of Irish Bee Keepers' Association. This provides our members with certified lecturers, annual honey shows, a monthly beekeeping magazine, insurance and many other great benefits.
We look forward to welcoming you to the County Wexford Beekeepers' Association.
