  1. Hi there,
    I recently returned to Ireland after a lifetime abroad and am living in the Gillogue area, Clonlara, Co. Clare.
    I have no prior experience but am interested in
    exploring the potential of bee keeping/organic honey production as a hobby/small business.

    If the idea had potential, then I would be keen to read up on it, attend courses, meet with others who share the same interests.

    I look forward to your response
    Thank you and regards

    Shane K Beaey
