Shane Lehane is a relative new-comer to beekeeping with just seven years experience of the vernacular craft. He is nonetheless hugely enthusiastic and has written extensively on the history and culture of beekeeping. Now the proud custodian of 14 hives, Shane will deliver an informative illustrated lecture outlining the essentials of beekeeping in Ireland. He will detail the intricate and complex life of a bee colony, the nectar and pollen sources available to bees and the challenges facing the modern beekeeper. His talk will include some humorous anecdote and interesting first-hand observations drawing from his own personal experience of beekeeping.
Please feel free to donate plants to our plant sale on 7 April in conjunction with Prof. Peter Jones’ talk.
