Dear guest,

Welcome to the website of Independent Loyalist Masonic Lodge 155 Rathfriland, I hope that you find it both worthwhile and informative.

We pride ourselves in upholding and practicing the age old rituals of freemasonry yet encouraging fellowship and good humour within the lodge at all times!

It is our aim to ensure that each member of the lodge whether he has been so for 50 years or has just started on his Masonic path feel equally comfortable and welcome and that each visiting brother leaves our meeting looking forward to his next return!
