The Association was founded, in 1956 prior to the holding of the 10th
FIBKA Summer Course in Villiers School on the 16th-21st of July which
was lauded as a great success. The lectures at the course were given by
Mr A.S.C. Deans and the bees for the demonstrations were provided by
Jack Ryan, now honorary member of the Association! The Honey Show that
year boasted of 60 entries and there were more than 100 exhibits.
Included in the original committee were Mr Liam Forde, Mr William Glasheen, Mr Ted Mc Carthy, and Mr Denis Buckley. The association has since gone from strength to strength, and continues to look after the needs of its many members.
