It was a sweet treat for pupils from a number of primary school children this week who were buzzing after a trip to see the bees up close.

On Monday pupils from St Oliver's Ballycasheen, Lissivegeen, Scoil Bhride Loreto and Presentation Monastery visited an Apiary site on Mill Road to observe bees in their natural environment.

SuperValu recently concluded its 'Save The Bees' campaign which was trying to create awareness on the declining Irish bee population.

Primary schools nationwide were sent pollination packs and 10 lucky schools won a Bursary Prize of €5,000.

There was one lucky Kerry winner Moyderwell Mercy Primary School in Tralee.

"This trip was kindly organised by Stephen and Pat O'Connor from Killarney Honey," Denis Tucker, Duty Manager with Daly's SuperValu, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"The pupils were provided with protective clothing and got up close to the bees. They were then brought to the O'Connor's family home honey lodge where they were shown how the honey gets from the hive to the jar and onto the supermarket shelf."
