The Province hosted the Grand Lodge of A. F. & A. Masons of Ireland Communication on Thursday 1st March 2018 in The White Horse Hotel, Campsie, Londonderry.
Due to adverse weather conditions, especially in Southern Ireland, the Grand Master and the Grand Secretary were prevented from travelling north. Other Grand Lodge Officers were also in the same situation and a number of Provincial Brethren volunteered to occupy the vacant offices.
R.W. Bro. John Cairns arranged all of the details for the day and then also stepped in acting as Grand Secretary for the Communication.
Tributes were paid to these Brethren for their enthusiastic agreement to stand in at such short notice.
The following 11 Provincial G.L. Officers officiated at the Grand Lodge Communication.
R.W. Bro. Raymond Robinson - Senior Grand Deacon
