Irish Freemasonry, indeed Freemasonry as a whole, is transparent, with the only
intent of making "Good men better" we only lead by example, hoping others will
follow and enjoy our Fraternity.
Freemasonry in Ireland is much older than the founding of our Grand Lodge in
1725, In 1830, in Limerick, they found on Balls-bridge a small square dated 1507,
with the inscription,
"I will serve to live with love and care, Upon the level, by the square."
A simple concise sentence, with the essence of Freemasonry in those 15 words,
500+ years later, and the words are as true today as they were when the Brother
inscribed them, they will continue to inspire Masons for another 500 years, to
think the whole ethos of the Masonic fraternity is captured in those words from
See the Lady Freemason link for the original letter to the editor of the Freemasons
Quarterly, reporting the find in their Summer 1842 edition, including a drawing of
both sides of the square.
