Welcome to the official website of the Lodge of Research 200 (Ireland)

The purpose of this website is to provide information on Irish Freemasonry to the membership under jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Ireland; which operates in various countries throught the world. For a list of the Provincial Grand Lodges under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Ireland, CLICK HERE .

The aim of the Lodge is to provide a centre for Freemasons, Researchers and Students of Freemasonry; to encourage and to foster a love of Masonic Research, History, Antiquities and Symbols, by means of the presentation of papers on, and discussions about, such topics.

The Lodge supports all Lodges and Brethren within the Irish Constitution and works closely with those Brethren undertaking research activities and promotes research throughout Irish Freemasonry history in general.

The Lodge of Research does not engage in the exemplification of Masonic Ritual, and confers only the Masonic Degree of Installed Master on its newly elected Worshipful Master.

Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to investigate Freemasonry. Further information can be obtained by exploring this website, or contacting W. Bro. Ian MacIntyre at ianmac.treasurer@yahoo.com
