Having vacated the seat of WM i will now be able to get more involved in the Degree Work as i found it not only a pleasure but a great honour to install my suessor. I hope that you personally get to read this message and wish you, your assistant and officers best wishes for the year ahead, and 275th year celebrations Yours W Bro A Wills

Comments: Dear Sir; My name is Phil Holmes and I am a Master Mason with the No. 197 Saugeen Lodge here in Walkerton, Ontario, Canada. If you look on a map, it is south of the city of Owen Sound near Lake Huron. The reason I'm writing is to ask if you could give me a contact near the town of Cork in SW Ireland. My wife is looking to attend the Ballymaloe Cookery School near there, hopefully, this fall. My family and I are going to come over for the months of Sept. and Oct. and would like to inquire if there is any short term accomodation, such as a cottage for rent, that might be available during that time. I would also be very interested in attending a Lodge in the area if that were possible. Any leads you might be able to provide would be much appreciated. I am very grateful that you had taken the time to post a web page and provide this forum. I can be reached on the web at the email address above or at pholmes27@yahoo.com. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide. Fraternally yours, Phil Holmes, No. 197 Saugeen Lodge Ontario, Canada

Comments: I am an ex-freemason and am fascinated to read some of the comments from other freemasons and non-masons. I left my Lodge (Lodge Singapore No. 7178) and went to Australia for a few years before returning to Singapore. In overseas masonic lodges, they really treat you as one of their brothers in the fraternity but in Singapore, freemasons belong to an elite group (successful businessmen, entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, etc). However, I do enjoyed some of the friendship extended by some brotherly masons who not really bother about your social status. By and large, this is an exception than the (unwritten) rule. I do hope I can come back to freemasonry once again.

I must be one of the more fortunate of our Brethren because I have visited the Grand Lodge several times and also attended a meeting on one of my visits. For any who haven't visited I can only say it's really worth the effort to go. Incidentally, your Tyler deserves a special mention as he is most helpful,extremely patient and very knowledgable. I noticed that you have had several requests to open a site for ex pats. - what a good idea. It really would be helpful to all us "foreigners" to be able to contact our Brethren who are spread over the four corners of the earth and keep us in contact with home.

I reside in retirement in Harare, Zimbabwe where I have affiliated to St. Patrick Lodge Mo 517 I.C. but was initiated into Lodge Hibernia No 749 I.C. Nairobi in Kenya 33 years ago and had the great honour to be Master of Hibernia when the Lodge was visited by The R. W. Grand Master, the Marquis of Donegal in 1985. He was accompanied by the Grand Secretary Michael Walker on that occasion. (For a time the Grand Secretary's brother was also a member of Lodge Hibernia and I send him my regards wherever he is now). I have forgotten the number of years I have held the office of organist (and played as a guest organist in other Constitutions). It was a very welcome honour therefore to receive the office of Hon.Past Grand Organist in the Irish Constitution. Having visited this website I am now 'working' on my good Wife to persuade her that we should visit Ireland next year for the 275th celebrations!

Comments: Greetings! I'm interested in Free Masonry as primarily a path for spiritual development. Although I live in the USA, I have a sincere longing to strengthen my Celtic heritage. Perhaps you could explain any similiarities/differences that exist between the lodges in Great Britain vs. USA. In addition, My personal interests involves utilizing "magick" as a self-improvement tool. Although I have no knowledge of your rites and rituals, I gather from illustrations and pictures I've viewed, it appears they are primarily "high-magick" in nature. Correct? Also, I am curious as to any historical relationship between Freemasonry and the practices of the ancient Druids. Although answering my questions in depth may not be permitted, I'd truly appreciate some sort of clarification on the nature of Freemasonry. Your assistance GREATLY appreciated! Thank you.

I had the great pleasure to visit your magnificient building and to tour the facilities some 16 or 17 years ago, the decor is outstanding and the few photographs I was permitted, have been proudly shown to a good number of Canadian Masons. I am a proud Past Master of The Lodge Of Antiquity A.F. & A.M. No. 1 G.R.Q. formerly "the Lodge of Social & Military Virtues No. 227, G.C. Ireland". During my brief tour I marvelled at the delightful Stained Glass windows and beautifully maintained fittings and ornaments. I also had a chance to visit the archives and see a few pieces of old correspondence to and from my mother lodge and G.L.I. St. Patrick's Night is still a very special occassion in our Lodge and we always meet on that date, whether a regular meeting night or not and I beleive we still receive the representative from the Grand Master of the G.L.I. on that occassion. Unfortunate I have not been there in person for some years as I currently live in Ontario and am now affiliated with Corinthian Lodge 481 G.L.C. Since I am Lodge Historian in Corinthian I would be interested to have information about the Irish History Lodge. (Sorry I've forgotten the correct name) What about the formation of an internet lodge for Irish (and those who wish to be) ex-patriates. Fraternal Greetings.

Comments: FRATERNAL GREETINGS and SALUTATIONS. It has been my great privilege and pleasure to visit the Island of Bermuda, and there enjoy the warmth of the fraternal welcome extended by the Masons in the several lodges I have attended. Last January, I was present for the 10th Anniversary celebrations of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Bermuda, IC, and was honoured to meet R.W. Bro. Fenelon, the Deputy Grand Master and R.W. Bro. Walker, the Grand Secretary. I am most grateful to read R.W. Bro. Walker's inspiring "Personal Musings" on the Internet. Subsequently I applied for affiliation and have been accepted as a member of Hannibal Lodge No. 224 IC, Bermuda. This is one of my proudest Masonic connections. Many of the oldest Canadian lodges trace their ancestry back to the Military Lodges which carried the travelling Warrants issued by the Grand Lodge of Ireland. And so we complete yet another Masonic circle. We are indeed Brothers in a double sense! Sincerely, Raymond Daniels, New Hope Lodge No. 279 GRC Cambridge, and Hannibal Lodge No. 224 GRI Bermuda

Our travel agent neglected to inform us of that great event, so when we arrived in town, not a room was to be had. Knowing nary a soul in Dublin, we contacted a gentleman who my Masonic Lodge's secretary knew, and within the hour, were being ushered to a small but cozy hotel room at the outskirts of downtown Dublin. It was certainly one of the many highlights of our trip. We look forward to returning to Dublin in the next few years, and I especially look forward to visiting the Grand Lodge when I have more time than I did on our last trip.

Comments: Just thought I would investigate further Freemasonry in Ireland. As my great-great grandfather was born, raised and married in County Clare before migrating to the United States, I was curious about whether dual-membership was permitted with one lodge being in the US and the other being in Ireland. It is an intersting notion and I thought it fitting in honor of him as well as for my grandfather (for whom I was named) who was a Blue Lodge, York Rite, Scottish Rite, and member of the Shrine. I wish he'd lasted another few years to see me follow him and my father into Freemasonry.
