13th November 2014, The Lodge went to Dublin to the Masonic Hall, Molesworth Street, to exemplify
 the 1st Degree before the V.W Grand Lodge of Instruction.

The 'Degree Team' was selected and Coached by R.W.Bro. Noel Simpson and V.W.Bro. John Gault.

The Brethren travelled to Dublin by Mini-bus driven by Bro Terence McKeegan in the most inclement weather to give an Exemplification of the Entered Apprentice Degree at the Grand Lodge of Instruction in Freemason's Hall, Molesworth Street, Dublin. The Grand Secretary of Instruction, R.W.Bro. Michael Ward praised the Brethren and thanked them for an excellent and most enjoyable Degree.
