This is a free event, but a voluntary contribution (€10.00) to NIHBS would be appreciated.  This contribution will go towards funding ongoing research and the fight to ban the importation of non-native Honey Bees.

Donegal bees will be on site so attendees can buy on the day or buy online and collect at the event.
