Equipment etc. for Sale/Exchange?

(Members Only)

If you have equipment or other beekeeping-related items for sale or exchange and wish to place them on the Done Deal or similar website please send us by email (gwaith@eircom.net), details of your ad and we will post a link to it on this site.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to give or receive things free of charge to and from members or other local people there is also a Limerick branch of Freecycle. Please then visit Freecycle in order, first of all, to sign up and then to post your offer/request. Once you have done this, you can email us at gwaith@eircom.net and we will post an alert on this site to members that your offer/request has been made via Freecycle.

As and when nucs become available they will be provided to members on a first-come, first-served basis. The price for nucs for 2014 is not yet certain. As a guide, the price in 2013 was 100 and the charge for queens was 20. Please note that the current market price for nucs is about 150 and so 100 is very good value and our price for queens represents a similar reduction. Given the very poor start to the spring of 2013, the market price may be even higher. All proceeds from sales of nucs and queens will go toward improving the Association Apiary.
