Welcome to the Grand Lodge of Ireland Web-Site designed to provide everyone with an insight into Irish Freemasonry and its activities.

Freemasonry is kindness in the home, honesty in business, courtesy in society, earnest in work, pity and concern for the unfortunate, resistance towards evil, help for the weak, forgiveness for the penitent, love for one another and reverence and love for God.
Freemasonry is many things, but above all, Freemasonry is a way of life.

Membership is open to all men of integrity and goodwill, irrespective of colour or creed, on condition that they profess a belief in a Supreme Being. How they choose to worship Him is not of interest to us.
There is evidence that Freemasonry existed in Ireland 500 years ago. The Grand Lodge of Ireland, our governing body, was constituted in 1725 and celebrated its 275th Anniversary in the year 2000, the last year of the 20th century. We are the second oldest Grand Lodge in the World.  Freemasonry brings men of goodwill together to enjoy one anotherís company and to continue our traditions dating back hundreds of years. It fulfils as great a need to-day as it did then.
Our Lodges are located all over the island of Ireland and in many Countries overseas.  It is said that the sun never sets on Irish Freemasonry. This web-site enables our Brethren near and far to be close to us at all times.
We hope that non-Masonic visitors to the web-site will find it interesting and informative. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
I extend warmest greetings to all our visitors.

M.W.Bro. George Dunlop,  Grand Master
