Five beehives have been delivered to Powerstown in Carlow as part of a sustainability project following on from restoration works at the site last year.
During the summer, over 100,000 bees will have an ideal habitat in Carlow.
In a post on Facebook, Carlow Beekeepers Association said: "A very exciting day for Carlow Beekeepers Association!
"We've moved our apiary to Powerstown. A fantastic move for us, and yet another great step in our Council's move towards supporting biodiversity. We look forward to a bright future and a great partnership!"
Check out what Brian O'Donovan from Carlow County Council had to say about the project below:
