Lannléire honey is produced by honey bees from nectar that they forage from flowers growing in the meadows, hedgerows, woodlands, and mountains of County Louth. Based in Dunleer, Eoghan Mac Giolla Coda is a fourth-generation beekeeper who learned the craft from his father in Co. Tipperary. Currently, he has around 150 colonies of bees spread across Co. Louth, from Drogheda in the south to the Cooley Mountains in the north of the county. Eoghan works with the native Irish honey bee, which is also known as the dark or black bee and is ideally suited to Ireland’s cool, damp climate. Lannléire honey has twice won the World Cup at the prestigious London Honey Show.
