I thoroughly enjoyed the photo tour of Grand Lodge, and commend your Webmaster on the layout of this website. I found it easy to navigate and was surprised at how fast the pages loaded (considering the graphics and images involved).
Our Lodge also has a fine history dating back to pre-Confederation (1860).
I had the pleasure of initiating 5 new candidates into this great fraternal organization during my term in the chair of King Solomon. I will always cherish the memories of my year as Worshipful Master and thoroughly recommend the travel to The East for any aspiring Officer.

If one of you could send me a 3X5 patch of the flag of the mother country, I'd go to Mass!!! What the need for the patch is all about is the fact I'm trying to put all the patches from a right smart career Marine on a jacket given me by the U.S. Navy Seals many moons ago. As it stands now my Brothers, is I have been fighting Agent Orange induced lymphoma. With the help of the Almighty and the love of Mother Mary, I'm still,with you all. I hail from Abner-Wade Lodge #207, A&FM, Sangerville, Maine. I am also a Noble of the Kora Shrine temple, Lewiston, Maine. Now that I'm settled down with a fine,fine woman (formally a Fitzpatrick, it appears I don't havethe sand I did as a younger man!!! Probably lucky to have my hair. If you lads could help m out with the patch, great. If not I understand. These days, paranoia has set in here badly and for good reason. Like all us snipers said at the end of 'Nam " we've ben kickin' other peoples arses for soooo long, now it's our turn. I don't dare fly the flag of Ireland out here let it be misunderstood!!! Any of you fine people are always welcome here. Please drop a line. You've got a terrified brother out here. I wish you all a grand, soft night. Bless Ireland Yourselves & Family. Anxiously hopingfor a reply of any kind, I remain Fraternally Yours,

One more thing, My Grandfather left me a design for a tatoo that has been passed down for generations. Mind ya now my Irish is rusty, but what exactly does "Riamh nar Drudid o' Spairrn Lann" mean? it is on my back, right between the shoulders as he asked. He was a Scrapper,my Da. Please raise to himself the parting glass, for if any soul needed rest it is he.

Comments: I'm doing some genealogy research. I'm looking for relatives of William or Robert Gordon Sharman Crawford. I have reason to believe that there may have been a male member of the family that was in tractor sales in the time period of 1890-1901 (roughly). He was from the Down/Antrim area. Unfortunately, he was supposedly killed when a tractor overturned on him around 1898-99. If anyone knows of any way that I might trace the genealogy of this family, I would greatly appreciate it. Linking his name to my grandmother's, Mary Ethel Mc Cormick Donovan, would greatly help. I do know that someone from this lodge was going to help put my granny into the Girls School in Dublin in the early 1900's. Thank you!

Comments: Hello,
I just wanted to thank you for this beautifully arranged website. It is very informative and interesting and, I think, a good way to reach people who are interested in freemasonry and potential new members.
I have only one comment to Mr.Malcomson's mentioned website: www.masoniclodge.org.com.
First I did not know what kind of website it is: pro- or anti-masonic but after further reading I saw it is anti-masonic. Secondly I do not know why the mentioned website discusses religion and politics in masonic works as freemasonry states openly to be non-political and non-religious and open to everybody who expresses a belief in a higher being.
So everybody, wether protestan, catholic, muslim, etc is welcome.
This is only what I understand and I am not a mason but very interested in the Irish lodge as I am a German national living in Ireland.
Thanks again and I am looking forward to see more of your website (Irish Lodge). Rene.

Comments: Fraternal greetings to all the brethren in Ireland. Belated congratulations to the Grand Lodge of Ireland for your 275th Anniversary.
I was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason on March 4, 2000. Masonry has had a profound effect on my life and my only regret is that I waited until age 44 to join the greatest fraternity known to man. I am a member of Royal Center Lodge #585, F&AM under the auspices of the Grand Lodge of Indiana, USA. I am honored to be serving as Junior Warden in our lodge and am very much looking forward to my year as Worshipful Master in 2003.
I was recently fortunate to witness a slide presentation presented by a past Grand Master of Indiana who visited Ireland on the occasion of your 275th Anniversary Celebration. It was quite informative and I was quite fascinated with the Irish architecture and the contributions of Freemasons to Irish history. I hope some day to have the time and resources to visit Ireland and see it all in person.
Congratulations are in order for your website as well. I've enjoyed visiting your site and will bookmark it for future reference. You may visit the website for the Grand Lodge of Indiana at http://www.indianamasons.org. I think you will find it to be an informative site as well.
I would enjoy corresponding with any of the brethren who happen to see this. Best wishes to all of the brethren in Ireland. James R. Dillman Logansport, Indiana, USA
