    Congratulations UL. If you are also interested the Limerick Urban Bee Keeper Society have some hives in place around Limerick City in such places as The Hunt Museum, LSAD, The Limerick Learning Hub and The Munchin’s Church. Welcome to the world of bee keeping and I hope all goes well with your apiary.
