A swarm of bees is on the loose on a Dublin city centre street
A swarm of bees have taken up residence on the footpath on North Frederick Street this afternoon.
16.37: Thankfully, the great bee crisis of 2015 is over, but we advice to keep an eye out if you in the city centre, just in case...
The last few bees have given up, but who knows where the swarm is now. It could be right behind you...— Live Drive (@LiveDrive) July 1, 2015

A bee keeper has arrived with a hive and what looks like a bongo drum, this is going to be incredible— Live Drive (@LiveDrive) July 1, 2015
The bee keeper has no protective gear, and is just scooping up the bees, calm as you like. The bees are not calm, I think it's time to panic— Live Drive (@LiveDrive) July 1, 2015
If you suffer from a fear of bees, or melissophobia to give it its proper name, you best stay away from the north inner city this afternnon.
According to the always useful folks at Live Drive, a swarm of the honey-making insects have taken up an area of the footpath on North Frederick Street, leading to some pedestrians taking evasive action.
