This weekend Brethren from Craigantlet 486 joined their Brethren from Temple 51, who sit at Arthur Square, Belfast, for a visit to the Grand Lodge of Ireland at Freemasons Hall, Molesworth Street, Dublin.
After an exceptional fried breakfast en route, at Newry Masonic Hall, the Brethren were treated to an informative guided tour of the Newry Masonic Hall, which was provided by local Brethren.
Upon arrival at the Grand Lodge of Ireland at Freemasons Hall, Dublin, the Degree Team from Temple 51 conferred an exceptional 1st Degree on their new candidate.
What a great way to be initiated into Freemasonry!
After the meeting an impressive guided tour of Freemasons Hall was provided by the Head Tyler which everyone found amazing.
The different Lodge rooms are a credit to everyone involved.
The Grand Lodge Room
The Chapter Room
The Knights Templar Room
The tour is highly recommended and is open to Freemasons and members of the public.
During the return journey to Belfast, a ballot on the coach raised £335 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
A great day was had by all!
