Concert,  April 1863 at The Mardyke, Skibbereen, West Cork, in Aid of Masonic Female Orphan Asylum with Patrons Named.

 

Concerts and lectures in the 19th century were a popular form of fund raising.

 

The Masons in Dublin ran secondary schools for the children of deceased or indigent members, the girls is now the Bewleys Hotel in Ballsbridge and the boys the UCD School of Architecture, Richview, Clonskeagh.  Both still have all the masonic detail in the tile work and decoration.
