Welcome to Le Droit Humain (Ireland)

The International Order of Freemasonry for men and women, Le Droit Humain, is worldwide. Membership is open to all adults, without distinction of gender, biological heritage or personal beliefs.

Freemasonry is an initiatory system containing the keys to the ancient mysteries, which are experienced through a series of mystery dramas designed to open up and deepen awareness and understanding.

Our Order is founded on the ancient teachings and traditions of Freemasonry.
An Irish lodge has been in the process of being founded since 2012, as a pioneer triangle “Elizabeth Saint Leger” (Motto: As Above, So Below) in the honour of the first female Irish freemason.
The Order was founded in 1893.

The International Order of Freemasonry for men and women, Le Droit Humain, works to the glory of the Great Architect of the Universe and/or to the perfection of humanity. On an individual level, it strives ” to promote the progress of individual worth, without the imposition of dogma, or exacting the abandonment of cultural or religious ideas”. On a group level “it works to unite men and women who agree on a humanist spirituality whilst respecting individual and cultural differences”.

Freemasonry is a pathway of initiation, free from dogma, inspired by the search for truth, an understanding of human consciousness – a science of the spirit. Masonic ritual and symbolism are the tools Freemasons use on that journey, whether this is their personal spiritual path towards the perfection of mankind; to liberty, equality and fraternity – human rights, Le Droit Humain.

It does not contradict such as belief either, but it does not imply it. The …
