The exhibition, entitled The murmur of bees, opened earlier this afternoon.

The exhibition shares the magic of bees and their vital role in nature.

Among the pieces on display include a delicate drawing of Saint Gobnait, the patron saint of bees which was created by stained glass artist Harry Clarke.

Clodagh Doyle is the keeper of the Irish Folklife division at the National Museum of Ireland.
