Grand Lodge calls for 'unity of purpose'

The following is a statement on behalf of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland ahead of the upcoming General Election:

The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland recognises the critical importance and huge significance of the forthcoming General Election.

As the United Kingdom commences the process of exiting the European Union it is essential a purposeful and stable Government is elected to act on behalf of, and deliver the best possible deal, for its citizens.

Equally, it is of the utmost importance that Northern Ireland continues to have a strong voice at Westminster. The June 8 poll will once again provide the opportunity for the people to vote for, and underline their support, for the Union.

As an Institution with a broad range of political opinion across our membership, Grand Lodge welcomes any closer collaboration between the pro-Union political parties.

We believe it is in Northern Ireland’s vital interests for as many Unionist MPs as possible be returned to our mother Parliament.

In Memoriam: Cyril Crooks

Cyril Crooks 23rd January 2017 (Past Master 1960) 

It is with sadness that we record the death of Cyril Crooks, Past Master and Member of Royal York L.O.L. 145 and the Loyal Orange Institution of Ireland. Son of Jimmy Crooks (also a past member), he was a pleasant, amicable and friendly man, a testament to his conduct as a Sales Manager in career and a football referee for the Irish Football Association. His conduct in, and commitment to , our institution was never for personal gain but for the benefit of others, and was consistent with his actions in the wider community in which he lived and worked. We will mourn his passing, but nowhere will that loss be more greatly felt than with his immediate family and family circle and to them we extend our heart felt sympathy.
Worship Master, Officers and Brethren of Royal York L.O.L. 145.
