years Co. Cork Beekeeper's Association was the only one serving the
county and meetings were held in various venues in the city. Then in
the nineteen fifties the association settled at The Munster Institute
on Model Farm Road where it remained until the 1980s.
The Munster Institute closed down and a new home
found at a school
nearby where Co. Cork Association spent another ten years or so and now
it has a home in the Cork Institute of Technology in the western suburb
In the 1960s and later, Beekeepers' Associations
East Cork, North Cork, West Cork, Southwest Cork, Dunmanway, Carbery
and, the youngest of them all, Duhallow. This means that Co. Cork
Association serves beekeepers in Cork City and suburbs and extends
the county for about twenty miles radius on all sides. We have a
membership of about one hundred and fifty and we welcome new members
all the time.
