  1. https://freemason.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Laws-Constitutions-5th-October-2019.pdf Grand Lodge of Ireland now hosts it new L&C. as 5 October 2019. Well partly hosted, as it only shows 49 pages as I presume the other 150 odd pages are to follow. In subordinate Lodge workings if the T's are not crossed and I's are not dotted then expect much displeasure ! How can a Grand Lodge indicate approval as 5 Oct 2019 and not have entirety of the L&C completed?
  2. Freemasons' Hall Arthur Square Belfast have hosted several papers (6) regarding the hall nearing 150 years existence. The paper on Women Freemasons compliments those members who served in The Great War. Interesting that the hall is offering accommodation Re Tyler's Rest article. The link is https://arthursquare.org/blog
  3. I wonder why Amnesty International and local politicians getting involved with this occurrence when no investigation and without an outcome declared. I suspect this reporting and opportunist occasion is by an aggrieved person within or without the Order. Antrim Province remains in a schism with internal leadership issues. I am Antrim an member but my allegiance is to the Order not the middle management that exists solely for personal acclamation.
  4. Its upon Freemasons' Hall Arthur Square Belfast - i obtained the below image from google maps street view https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.5986943,-5.927419,3a,18.4y,6.49h,112.84t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1suISrGv-ERJlT8oWKywKhzg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en-GB
  5. This motif is on facade of a Hall in Belfast (IC) The outer circle is not part of the motif. Any explanations to its origin or meaning please.
  6. Grand Lodge of Ireland has again revamped its website - same address https://freemason.ie/ The 2015 revamped web site was inferior to content as what was previously hosted with extensive back catalog of minutes historical matter. And now this second revamp there is less material hosted. Not even a news section. Keeping the membership in the dark!
  7. Best wishes to Frank (contributor to this form) on attaining Provincial Assistant Grand Master rank yesterday.
  8. Hello Mike, I am aware, from your postings, that you are about at UGLE HQ during the working week, which also is fine with me. However, previous dialog with any brother often progresses to the dire manner governance subject in Freemasonry. So less it be a chance encounter with a stranger I would usually allocate at least an hour / or a lunch meeting. There upon a greater rewarding time. Thank you for the invitation - and if you can spare the time - i will. Lagavara1
  9. Whilst i was over in London, for various armistice events, I also revisited the UGLE museum for the Bejeweled Exhibition. I thought it worthy and a pleasant intriguing broader perspective on and within Masonry. And the floating ashlar show balloon, within the Lords Mayors Show Parade, depicting £100 million Masonic charity monies, was thought provoking without being self appreciating. Well done on both initiatives.
  10. Freemasons' Hall Arthur Square Belfast has refreshed their web site. https://arthursquare.org/ It previous website was only hosted 10 year ago and the Hall has taken the occasion of commemoration 150th anniversary of laying foundation stone to refresh. Hall also acquired an once lost original artwork to mark the event on 24 June this year. Here is link of the Belfast Newsletter on same. https://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/pictures-inside-ni-freemasons-hall-no-handshake-needed-for-tour-of-once-secret-location-1-8624638
  11. I would have thought that in June 2015 when GLoI took the decision to change its website which had lots of information, regular updates including GL minutes to the now existing, totally useless website - that it was being done at behest of a webmaster. What GL has successfully achieved by their implantation without discussion is the eradication of decisions by GL contained within their own reports. Each report insignificant when read independently but when appraised collectively a wholly different account to matters became transparent. Nor has the recruitment of a new Grand Secretary with necessary skills changes matters one iota.
  12. Mike Martin first posted on 13 June 2015 that Grand Lodge Of Ireland had new a website, i aired concerns . Sadly, since then Grand Lodge has not finished anything on the site, Not even a singular news item has been hosted. No archive upon anything. No schedule of Grand lodge meeting dates. The hierarchy of Irish Masonry is effectively switching off the lights.
  13. I visited and availed of the tour today within this hall, courtesy of European Heritage Day weekend events. Absolutely superb manner of associating the renowned architect Sir Charles Lanyon (1870's) and his masonic membership and numerous educational story boards on masonic artefacts / working tools. Uncertain as to what was 'spiced up' by the journalist. I look forward to learning of reports at the Antrim Province board meeting next week as our Principal secretary was well pleased today on his tour.
  14. This article was an entire 2 full page spread ( no adverts or anything else ) in yesterdays mornings Belfast Newsletter newspaper. https://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/pictures-inside-ni-freemasons-hall-no-handshake-needed-for-tour-of-once-secret-location-1-8624638 Best wishes to those involved in the Arthur Square Hall.
  15. Belfast Telegraph newspaper reports on 150 anniversary meeting https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/video-news/video-150-years-of-northern-ireland-freemasonry-36961575.html View the video and observe the vacant balcony seating. A very disappointing turnout.
