Greetings from the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro R David Hamilton

KODAK Digital Still Camera

I am delighted to have the opportunity to welcome you to the official website of the Masonic Province of Armagh. Our aim is to provide a broad overview of Freemasonry in the Province of Armagh and to set out the principles of our Order along with history and information about the Lodges and their activities, and especially the charitable work which is undertaken.
Despite common opinion, Freemasonry is not a political or religious organisation. In Fact those two topics are not to be discussed at any Masonic meeting. Freemasonry enables men from different parts of society to meet together as equals, regardless of religious background, political leaning, class or any other social category.
The website is mainly for the dissemination to our Brethren at home and abroad, you are very welcome to enter the site and I would hope you find it interesting and informative. you may contact us for further information. Many people assume that to become a Freemason you have to be invited to join. This is not the case, in fact while members might encourage their friends to join, they do not recruit or invite candidates for membership. Anyone interested in joining is encouraged to ask a member or e mail the Provincial Grand Secretary,    V W Bro Gilbert T Irvine at                                                                                                           This year, 2018 marks a milestone in the history of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Armagh, being constituted on the 2nd April 1868  making it our our 150th anniversary. Several events have been organised for during the year to mark this important milestone in the history of our Provincial Grand Lodge and your support will be greatly appreciated. The Provincial Grand Lodge has been invited to attend the Choral Evensong service in St. Patricks Church of Ireland Cathedral, Armagh at 3:15pm on Sunday 22 April 2018. The service is open to non – masons and their wives / partners and non-masonic friends. I do look forward to seeing you all there. Details of other events being held throughout the year can be obtained from Lodge secretaries or by contacting the Provincial Grand Lodge Secretary or his assistant by e mailing them at
