What to expect

Local Freemasons will share their stories of why, where and when they joined our fraternity, and what they connected with and to Freemasonry.
We also tell you about famous Irish and International Freemasons that we are connected to by our traditions, interests and through time.

Freemasonry has a 300-year long tradition and even older roots. But no matter from what period, we are all connected in traditions and spirit to Brethren from all around the world and all times.
The Brethren from Emerald Lodge No. 49, Greystones once again open their meeting hall to the interested Public and will share their stories and connections with you.
What is it that connects Mozart, Burns, Goethe, Daniel O’Connell, Captain Robert Halpin, the Titanic and our local Brethren?

What to expect

On your arrival, you will be greeted with a nice cuppa and a few biscuits. Some Brethren will be available to answer your questions and, if you want, to show you around in a tour-like manner.

When we think that all interested have arrived, several Brethren will share their own stories and how they connect to famous Irish and International Freemasons.
Although there is no global Freemasonry, we still have an international chain of like-minded people and one could call this a global family.

In our lodge alone, we have at least 6 nations present and speak about 8 or 9 languages natively. We even offer a safe haven for at least two Corkmen.

Although some Brethren do speak Irish, this event will not even be in parts Irish.
