The Metropolitan Area
The 37 Lodges of the Metropolitan area are unique in having no Provincial Grand Lodge structure and are under the direct jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Ireland. The Metropolitan Board of General Purposes, while having no Ritual or Ceremonial function, exercises many administrative functions in a similar manner to the Provincial Grand Lodges.
The Metropolitan Board consists of 15 members elected annually by the Lodges with members retiring on a three year rotational basis. Each member represents a number of Lodges including own, and is responsible for communications between the Board and those Lodges.
The MetroMason newsletter, published in the spring and autumn each year, brings news of coming events and reports of past events to members.
