PGL Antrim



Greetings from the

Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master

R.W. Bro. John McLernon

The Province of Antrim has 150 Lodges and forms part of the Grand Lodge of Ireland. It stretches from the Greater Belfast area to Portrush and Ballycastle in the north.

Freemasonry requires its members to treat each other, with respect regardless of class, creed, colour or race. It is non-sectarian, non-political and reminds us of the needs of others who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Hence, one of our main aims, is to support, not only Masonic Charities, but many other local charities, such as, the N.I. Hospice, Action Cancer, N.I. Air Ambulance, TLC (Teddies for Loving Care) and many others.

Many people assume that to become a Freemason you have to be invited to join. This is not the case and whilst members may encourage their friends to become freemasons, there are other ways in which you can join. We often use the saying, “to be one, ask one”. If you are interested in receiving more information on becoming a freemason, go to the “How to Join” of this website and complete the information requested and someone will contact you.

I hope you enjoy your visit to this site and look forward to welcoming you in the future.
