Thomas Clancy was born in Glenfarne Co. Leitrim, married to Bridie, with four children and 9 grandchildren.
Educated in Saint Joseph’s Manorhamilton and the National College of Ireland, I worked all his working life with Dublin Bus, first as a driver and quickly graduated to the Training and Development School there. While in Dublin Bus he lectured for many years in Leadership and Personnel Management on a part time basis at my Alma Mater. Over several years he had articles and short stories published and I’m currently working on the completion of a book on his primary school experience.
In 2006, while thinking of something for his retirement he started studying Apiculture, the study and craft of beekeeping.
Having undertaken beekeeping courses at different levels he opened his first Apiary at Barnhall, Leixlip in 2007.
In 2018 he approached Carton House, Fairmont seeking a site for a private apiary.
Carton House honey is of the highest quality because of the organic plants and foliage from which the bees forage. The non-use of pesticides and insecticides means bee health is not compromised and the honey product is of pristine quality. Carton House honey is a light golden shade and as it is Raw (not processed) it contains 100% of the natural oils and enzymes. One cannot get a better food product than Raw Honey, it and Dates are collectively known as God’s Food.
