It’s a long way to . . . Belturbet

That’s in Country Cavan, quite a few miles north of Tipperary!

Representing six different lodges, brethren from Gloucestershire and Somerset were “on tour” visiting Lodge Number 99.  Calling the intrepid travellers from refreshment to labour, organiser Geoff Cave [Tyndall Lodge] took the chair to carry out a demonstration third degree; all of the tourists taking part.  Derek Gunningham [Kendleshire Lodge] providing a faultless rendition of the traditional history, as usual.

“The lodge meets in the Seven Horseshoes Hotel,” said guest Senior Deacon, Richard Williams-Jones [also Kendleshire].  His attempts to perambulate with the candidate quickly established that the lodge room was not quite big enough!  The Assistant Grand Master of Ireland was also in attendance, as was the Grand Charity Steward, Ian Dunne, who provided the link for the visit.  For many years, Ian has been a regular visitor to Gloucestershire lodges in the south of the province.
