Brethren of Lodge no. 107, I greet you well and congratulate you in reaching the 150th Anniversary of your formation.

Your Warrant was issued by the Grand Lodge of Ireland on 16th February, 1861 ant the Lodge was called “Sphinx” as a compliment to the Queen’s Own Regiment which had distinguished itself in Egypt. Permission for the Lodge to have a silver Collar for your Worshipful Master was also granted in your Centenary year, which was most appropriate.

Your dedication, commitment and struggle, has raised your vision to new horizons and I am confident that you will leave a worthy legacy for those who will follow, knowing that you will strive to expand Irish Freemasonry in this area and enjoy the satisfaction and pleasure which will result.
I wish you every success and thank you all, most sincerely, for taking on a most responsible task on behalf of Irish Freemasonry. May every success be yours and may your masonic deeds bear much fruit.
God Bless you all.
Best wishes & kind regards,
M. W. Bro. George Dunlop
Past Grand Master
