The Irish Beekeepers Association CLG (“the IBA”), was established in October 2017 as a democratic and egalitarian company in order to support Irish Beekeepers and the bees that they keep.

We hope to create an environment of mutual respect and understanding, so that no beekeeper ever feels marginalised or ostracised.
