A Paper "Fremasonry in the City of Newry" written by Rt. W. Bro. R. Bashford, which was read by the W. Bro. Srcretary, this was to mark the 250 aniversary of Union Lodge No. 23.    The Paper was a most interesting one not only dealing with the history of Lodge No. 23 but the two other Lodges in the City, No.77 (St. Patrick's the oldest lodge in Ulster) and No. 696 (Annalong).   There were many extracts from minute books and local newspapers which showed that The Brethren of the "Mystic Tie" knew not only how to adapt to changing social conditions but also how to enjoy themselves.
