Our Irish Brethren

For the benefit of our Scottish and Irish brethren, and as an exercise in illumination to some of our US jurisdictions who forswear such behavior and condemn it as "un-Masonic,", I present the following message without further comment.

Lodge 2 in Dublin, Ireland’s oldest lodge and arguably the oldest “continually warranted” lodge in the world would like to extend a warm welcome to all our Scottish brethren who are coming over for the Ireland v Scotland Rugby match on the 23rd February and invite you to our Premium Whiskey Charity night on Friday the 22nd February in one of the most impressive, purpose-built buildings in Ireland - Freemasons Hall, 17 Molesworth St, Dublin 1 at 7.30 pm.

Experts from Irish Distillers, Cooley Distillery and the Whiskey Shop will take brethren through some of the finest Irish and Scottish whiskies available.

There will be a chance to see “The Big Room” and meet new friends as well as have a few drams of the good stuff. Rumours of an Ireland versus Scotland Whisky drinking challenge have been wildly exaggerated. We don’t want to get gubbed twice in the one weekend!

Tickets are €35 (£21) but for visiting Scottish brethren, we’ll make it £20.


Sojourning Masons may wish to contact Brother Kevin McParland at duncan1207@kelvinpartick.fsnet.co.uk
