Wishing you all the best on your celebrations set for 2000. Would you consider keeping Grand Lodge of British Columbia (AF&AM) informed of your 2000 plans? (www.bc-freemasonry.com). I'm sure you would have a few B.C. brothers dropping in as a result. On a personal note, I was born & raised in Dublin.I only know one brother in Dublin and he is a WB. If there are any other brothers in Ireland who might remember me do share my e-mail address with them. All the best in 2000. Keep updating the website.

Comments: Delighted to find your page. I am a PM of Polar Star Lodge No. 79, Clayton, MO. and retired from business almost two years ago. Since then, one of my acitivities has been filling in the branches of my family tree. Have traced, to date, back to my great-great-great grandfather, born in Limerick County, Ireland, about 1753, died in the United States (State of Ohio) in 1828. His parents may, or may not, have been a John and Mary Ramage, Family's verbal history, however, speaks of original roots in what is now Scotland. Any Freemasons in Ireland who may be related are fraternally invited to exchange information. Once again, an informative and interesting page. Thank you.

Comments: Great Page and I particularly liked the photographic tour. I last visited Molesworth Street in 1956, prior to leaving for New Zealand. Our visit must have impressed my friend from Bangor, as he went home and joined up a couple of years later! My mother Lodge is Lodge Robert Burns 440 (SC) and I have belonged to Lodge Te Puke 261 (NZC) in the North Island of New Zealand, our nearest Irish Constitution is in Thames, and I have visited it a few times ......... Good wishes for the future of your web page!

Comments: Having been away from Ireland for 30 years, I was wondering if the Masonic Boys' School in Dublin is still operating. I was there from 1954 - 1960, my brother was also there before me and if that isn't enough; my Dad was there in 1915. I think my brother & I were part of a new generation. Would appreciate any info on the school's present status and if they have an Email Address.

Comments: Good Day Brethren! I am very pleased to find you on the net. It is even more pleasing that you chose our 40th wedding anniversary to open your web Page. We are diligently searching (seek and ye shall find...) for clues to the life of Hugh McCalpin [McAlpine, etc] of Belfast from at least 1885 until 1933. He is my wife's greatgrandfather. Family Lore states that Hugh was a Mason, and that the Order helped him regain his job with the White Star Line after he was discharged as a result of some supposed dereliction of his duties as a "sailor"; of what rank, we know not. Hugh and his family lived in the Ballymacarrett section of Belfast from about 1885 until at least 1894, the time of the death of his wife and newborn son. His three daughters came to America with an Aunt and Uncle about 1900, and we lose the track of Hugh until the Uncle, on a business trip to Ireland in 1933, reports that he had seen "Hughie Boy" briefly. It is believed that Hugh died about 1935, probably in Belfast. Can you help us find the correct records that can help us in our quest? It would be GREATLY appreciated. Meantime, congratulations on your new website, and may it promote understanding and brotherhood, two commodities that are in too short supply. Fraternally, Larry A.

The Naracoorte Lodge was founded in 1896 under the Irish Constitution, but changed after a very brief pause in meetings, (brought about by a lack of suitable premisses). I thank you for the opportinity to visit. How did I find you? UKMason. S & F Bro. Don Martin JW December 1998.

Comments: Guys, it's great news that someone finally got around to doing an Irish masonic website. The site is a great start. Just noticed some typos such as 'sojurn' instead of 'sojourn' and the international dialling code for Dublin is +003531 not +00441. Also the pictures in the tour are scanned at too low a res and then blown up to make them look very blocky. Also, are you missing a picture of the Knight Mason's room? Overall it's great and I hope you go on from strength to strength, sincerely and fraternally, Bro. Kieron Lawlor J.W. Dalkey Lodge #261 DLIADT Network Administrator
