Today, Thursday October 27th, a new Dublin Bus beehive has been installed at Broadstone Depot, Dublin 7, ahead of United Nations (UN) World Cities Day on October 31st 2022. As part of the ‘Dublin Buzz’ initiative set up in 2021 to help native Irish Black Bees thrive amid dwindling numbers, an unused plot at Phibsboro Depot was transformed into a hive of activity last year, and now Broadstone and Phibsboro Depots will be home to up to 150,000 bees during the summer months and from 20,000 bees during the winter months.
