Looking for Beekeepers in Dublin area

    I've completed the beginners course with the County Dublin Beekeepers' Association and am set to sit my parliamentary exam in Gormanston at the end of this month. I've been helping out at a hive in my home county of Kildare but it's not exactly convenient for me as I live and work in the city.

    I'm basically looking for a Dublin based beekeeper who will allow me to accompany them for inspections just so I can observe, learn, and to help as much or as little as they are comfortable with. I have my beesuit etc. and cycle/drive so I can reach most areas around the city and in county Dublin fairly easily. If anyone is willing to help me out, or knows someone that can, it'd be much appreciated.

    Have you tried asking on the Irish Beekeepers facebook page? Not that many people on this forum unfortunately.
    There's a County Dublin Beekeepers page as well I think? I'm a member of that association myself.
    I'm based in Clontarf but have an erratic schedule and I'm already showing a few people the ropes!
