RIP Dave Cushman

News reached us from the UK today that a great friend of Irish beekeeping, Dave Cushman, passed away yesterday.  Dave had been ill for some time, but nonetheless it comes as a great shock.

Dave will be remembered by beekeepers in these islands for his very active role in BIBBA and his enthusiasm for the FIBKA Gormanston summer school, as evidenced in these reviews of the summer school.  He was an active and highly valued contributor to the Irish beekeeping list.  However it is for perhaps the best beekeeping website in the world, http://www.dave-cushman.net/bee/newhome.html that Dave will be best remembered.

Dave, you will be sorely missed.

RIP Dave Cushman.

Simon Rees, CDBKA chair.
