We consider a branching Brownian motion in which binary fission takes place only when particles are at the origin at a rate β>0 on the local time scale. We obtain results regarding the asymptotic behaviour of the number of particles above λt at time t, for λ>0. As a corollary, we establish the almost sure asymptotic speed of the rightmost particle. We also prove a Strong Law of Large Numbers for this catalytic branching Brownian motion.
