On October 15 2016, Temple 51 Masonic Lodge, joined with members from Newtownards and as far as Scotland, visited the Grand Lodge of Ireland in Dublin – Molesworth Street.
A tour was given around the magnificent hall courtesy of Br. Keith. Two 2nd Degrees (Sebastian and Alexander) were conferred, aswell as one 3rd Degree, under the excellent instruction of W.Br. W.Moore, W.Br. Harvey and W.Br. Jacobs.
A good time was had all around.
Give it a Shot, Clay Pigeon Night, took place on Tuesday 4th Oct 16 at the Thatch Clay Target Club Broughshane. The event was to raise funds for the TLC Appeal (Teddy’s for Loving Care) – and was open to both Masons and family. It was an enjoyable night with the positive that no Mason was hurt – they were excellent shots. We highly recommend paying a visit to the Thatch Clay Target Club and we thank them for their hospitality. Here’s some snaps:
While the organisation has been in Ireland for 300 years, with about 800 Irish lodges across the country, few have seen inside their halls. Much of the myth surrounding the order spans from its secrecy. But recently, the Freemasons open the doors to their ornate administrative headquarters on Dublin’s Molesworth Street.
