Full colour Booklet on ‘Ireland’s Bees’
by John Breen. “There are about 98 species of
bees in Ireland and this booklet is an introduction to
our Irish Bees”.
This is ideal for beekeepers to learn more about
other bees and for friends & family who are not
beekeepers to read about some Solitary bees and
Its now available as a set, along with ‘Bees and the
Environment’ by Willie O’ Byrne.
“In recent history, Ireland was well populated
with honeybees, living off a land abounding with
forage, uncontaminated and pure.”
