I am currently corresponding with a brother from Randalstown and he recently sent a copy of the 2000 Gazette of the PGL of Antrim. Pg. 14 mentions the Irish Lodge of Research
....do they have a publication? Also where might I find information on the Masonic connections during the Rebellion of 1798? Since I am also the Sec. of the Triad Council,AMD I have been searching out information on the Knights of the Red Branch since we also have the Red Branch of Eri as one of the degrees and I would like to give a paper on that subject at a council meeting.

Seeing that somewhere way back when, my fathers people ( who I believe were masons) came from Ireland and as we all get older we seem to want to know whee our roots lie. I thought this might be a good starting point as I am a 3rd generation mason here in Australia. I want to congratulate those responsible for creating such a site, it does so much for the good of fremasonary to be able to communicate not only through actual visiting but now throught the WWW.

Comments: I recognize the Masonic emblum as the same as that found on a ring owned by my great grandfather Doctor Jesse R. Kelly. His great grandfather came to Virginia before 1750. He was a blacksmith, but seems that Freemasonry ran in the family down to my grandfather. I enjoyed visiting your website and will return for more. Don Kelly

Comments: A few years ago I had the pleasure of sitting in Supreme Grand Chapter, in Molesworth Street. I was met and was treated with the warmest brotherly love, and hospitality. I met R.W.B.Michael Walker,and a host of others. On our visit to Ireland, I tried without success, to locate the names of my great grandfather, Patrick Lawson, who came to America in the 1850s. I DID,however find a number of fine Brother Masons whoenriched me with their knowledge, sincerity,and openness to a visiting Brother . I had missed your Grand Lodge session by two weeks, but Grand Chapter certainly was no disappointment. I am a life member of Far East Lodge #1, Yokohama Japan, and am the Chaplain/Historian of Franklin Lodge #56, Bristol, CT. USA. I was looking through the "bookmark" section of my computer, and felt compelled to drop you a line. I congratulate you on your 275th anniversary, and wish I could think of an excuse to visit you again! In the 37 years of my Masonry, I have travelled a bit, and have left Masonic memorials in many mountain ranges-- Kilimanjaro, Everest Base, Mt Fuji, the Japan alps, and recently on the high passes along the Tour du Mont Blanc, in France, Italy,and Switzerland. When we climbed Carrantoul, I did not leave any medallion on the summit, since I would not want to offend, should discovery be by one not sympathetic to the Craft. I did, however, recite a Masonic prayer, and Kiplings "Mother Lodge" , as I have done on so many other climbs. Sorry for the length of this message, but I became most nostalgic when I dropped in to your site. Warmly and Fraternally, Bro. Ed Lawson. Far East #1, Franklin #56

Comments: Brother Secretary & to other interested Brethern, I have found a very large glassed in wooden picture frame holding a very old Membership Certificate (or is it a Charter?), including a picture of a Brother Mason wearing a Masonic sash, and the sash itself is included with a considerable amount of designs, icons, and symbols. The Certificate states that it is from the Grand Lodge of Ireland, Orange Lodge No. 1106. The Masonic sash looks almost red in color today but it was probably orange many years ago. The signatures and printing are very hard too read on the Certificate because of its age. This article hangs on a wall of the 3rd floor of the Masonic Temple, 133 East Michigan Avenue, Battle Creek, MI 49014 USA. Have you any knowledge about Orange Lodge No. 1106 in your records? It is probably well over 100 years old. It might be interesting to scan the old black & white picture, Certificate, or simply take a digital picture of the whole thing for you to see. Fraternally & Sincerely Yours, Jerry Gibbons Education Officer, Ira A. Beck Lodge #503, Grand Lodge F&AM of Michigan Membership Chairman, Grand Commandery Knights Templar of Michigan

Comments: Brothers, I am most pleased to sign your guest book. In tracing my family heritage I have found a short time ago that my mothers family was Irish, (Tierney). On contacting the family and eventually meeting the extended family they have traced family members back to Ireland as far as the mid 1200's. And yes I am proud of my Irish heritage. My blue lodge is in Hutchins, Texas, (Hutchins #1154). I am also a member of the YOrk Rite, Tancred Commandary #82 in Dallas, Texas. I would be most interested in hearing from any brothers in Ireland, most especially any of the Tierney family that may be a member of the order. Fraternally, Robert M. Allwardt
