Re: Bees need a new home!

Thanks a million but really trying to find somewhere in Donabate. I only get a small amount of time to get up to the hive and manage it so looking for something close to home. Thanks a million though!

Bees need a new home!

Hi all, I keep some bees (3-4 hives) currently up in Corballis allotments. I need to move them off that site and to somewhere a bit more secluded but local. Anyone know of any farmers or land owners that wouldn't mind bees on their land? Car access would be ideal since during some months there is a ...

Re: Destruction of tress in Newbridge Demesne

Yes but there was no need to cut the old trees. The new trees were planted elsewhere.

It also probably takes about 20 years for what you said to be true. And the survival rate of the new trees needs to be high.

The point is that there was no need to chop the old trees.

Because If you’re seeing the animals for free, then why would you pay in?

Also explains all the trees being cut down around the place and bushes being cleared.

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Hi! We’ve lived here for 3 years now and love it. I find it very quiet at night, I’m usually out walking the dog and usually all you meet are more dog walkers. Beverton is very quiet too. Sure you have the old Turvey golf course on one side, bird sanctuary and other golf course on another on newbrid...

Re: Destruction of tress in Newbridge Demesne

Yeah I totally agree. It’s a joke, do they not have some mandate to preserve the trees and wildlife that live among them? (The blackberry bushes have all been removed in the field beside where the gate was added, and whatever rabbits lived there too-probably buried). I thought the park was doing a g...

Re: Break Ins

On that night, in Beresford, nothing was broken into. They were opportunists, checking any open doors on cars and looking over the side gate. You’d be surprised how many doors are left open in an estate, I was anyway!

A lad in a hoodie was checking car doors going from house to house and manages to rob the contents of a few unlocked cars. Remember to lock up, these lads don't care if they're spotted or ...

Re: Kiting Buddie

Still interested and got out on Donabate a few times over the last few months. A great spot!

Might be worth getting a WhatsApp group together to let people know when they are heading out and to keep an eye on weather conditions. I'm using the Tesco windmill as a good reference!

It's now been rehoused in Donabate! Happy days! What I reckon happened in your garden is that the beekeeper plac...

Watch out for swarms of bees!

Hi everyone, I keep bees here in Donabate. I had 4 hives going into last winter but due to the wether conditions (maybe), 3 of them died out! Apparently, last winter most bee keepers lost about 60% of hives. Anyways, it's around this time of year that swarms of bees leave their hives going out to fi...

I ain't heard nothin!

But, I would have to agree with people saying that it will probably be a nightmare for traffic in that area. Would the roundabout at GreatGas not be a much better place to serve Donabate and the surrounding areas?
