It is with honour and pleasure I welcome you to our Website for the Masonic Province of South Eastern Counties. While one of the smaller Masonic provinces in Ireland, the province has provided two Grand Masters in living memory. The city and county of Waterford, the counties of Carlow and Kilkenny and the towns of Clonmel and New Ross constitute the Masonic Province of South Eastern Counties.

The Lodges in the Province are:
          Masonic Lodge, No. V Waterford
          Royal Shamrock Masonic Lodge, No. 32, Waterford
          Donoughmore Masonic Lodge, No. 44 Clonmel
          Unity Masonic Lodge, No. 116 Carlow
          Masonic Lodge, No. 642 Kilkenny

It was a great honour to be installed as Provincial Grand Master at the recent communication of Grand Lodge held in Carlow. The province has a great tradition, and I wish to thank my predecessor Right Worshipful Tom McBain for the way he so ably lead the province during his term of office. I am proud to be a Freemason and look forward to leading the Brethren of South Eastern Counties in one of the world's oldest, fraternal, non political and non sectarian societies. The highest moral standards are expected from Freemasons, as well as being taught to practice charity and caring, not only to our own members but to the community as a whole.

Our Provincial Grand Lodge has four Stated Communications during the year, held in the four Lodge rooms where the five Lodges meet. The Brethren in our Lodges are always ready to welcome and receive new members. There is also a Ritual class to help all Brethren, but especially the newer members, to learn and understand our rituals. Those interested should read our web pages and learn about of our Ancient Order.

John Fryday, Provincial Grand Master
