GALLERY: 'They came in and circled,' swarm of bees settle in residential garden in Carlow

The local, who contacted Carlow Live, said: "They came in and circled and decided on a Japanese Maple. It was wonderful to see.

"We were delighted to have them but we were very grateful to Malone Fruit Farm who came and safely removed the bees. They placed them safely into a portable hive.
