The NKBKA Annual Honey show took place in the DARA Cinema, Naas on Tuesday night 8th October. Over 50 entries were recorded in many categories from honey to honey cakes, candles and much more. The successful winners are shown below, displaying their awards.
A special thank you is due to our 3 judges on the night – Colm O’Neill, Sean Byrne and our life member and long standing judge Peter O’Reilly (seen above in the white judges coat).

A special thank you is also due to Mark and Lucy Fitzpatrick (both to Peter’s right side), who took charge of the administration on the night.
