Next FBKA monthly meeting (All are welcome):

The next meeting of FBKA will be held on Thursday 30 March, 2023 at 8.00pm in Fermanagh House, Enniskillen. At it, the progress of the research being carried out on honeybees in University College Dublin will be given by those carrying out the work. As some of our members have contributed bees to be analysed in the project, it will be very interesting to hear the results and to decide on our best way forward, as an Association, to act on the information. The meeting will held by Zoom so will be available to those not able to join with us in person in Fermanagh House.

Everyone interested in bees and beekeeping will be welcome.

At the Annual Dinner, held in the Enniskillen Hotel after the AGM in January, Brian Dane was awarded a well-deserved Life Membership of Fermanagh Beekeepers’ Association for his dedication to the work of the Association. He has acted as Chairman, has taken a leadership role in establishing the link to the NIHBS queen rearing initiative, is the tutor for the Proficiency in Beekeeping course and always supports the more mundane aspects of the work of the Association such as apiary maintenance etc.
