Review 2011


Brethren,

It is very fitting that these remarks come to you from the “Land of the Solstice Square”, home of Robert Burns, one of the greatest Masonic Poets ever. Today our “Review of The Year” is presented around the music of one of Rabbies best known songs – “Auld Lang Sang”, a song so fitting for the end of the old year and birth of the new.

Freemasonry is, at its core, about people and their relationships one with another. It is the people who are proud of their Freemasonry, and who are prepared to act as Ambassadors of our Craft who make this site what it is, and we are honoured to present a few of the photographs, representative of the many Irish and Scottish Masonic events that took place over the past twelve months.

Brethren, we wish you, your friends and family a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year, and look forward to your continued support for www.irishfreemasonry.com in the weeks and months ahead.


Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to min’?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o’ lang syne!

Chorus:
For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine,
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot
Sin’ auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’t  i’ the burn
Frae mornin’ sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin’ auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine;
And we’ll tak’ a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup,
And surely I’ll be mine;
And we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!
