The Report of the Grand Lodge Board of General Purposes presented at the Stated
Quarterly Communication of Grand Lodge held in Cork on Saturday 2nd March, 2002,
contained a recommendation that if the terms of settlement of the litigation in
progress were finalised and a Consent Order were duly signed by all parties,
that Grand Lodge would give its final approval so that matters could return to
