They have some kind of thing, but I don't think they're 'full' masons, so to speak.

Had a works do at the Masonic centre in Clerkenwell a couple of years ago. Funny place.

Buried up in St Finbar's. Wasn't the story that she accidentally saw a ceremony, so they had to either sign her up or kill her?

Yip , when she was a child , her ma had died when she was young and her dad held an induction up in the castle , out blarney ( or maybe a house out near Blarney not sure )

She pushed a brick out of a wall and watched the whole lot ( at age 12 or 14 I think )

After confusion and debate they decided to fully induct her as the safest option.

Funny thing , her Dad didn't have any sons I think , and was very devoted to her . one wonders ...

Close but no cigar.

It was Doneraile and it was the daughter of Viscount Doneraile.

There are many rumours and myths about freemasonry. Some think that they have the secrets and knowledge from Atlantis, some believe that they are in league with the devil. AFAIK the most common belief is that the order is descended from the Knights Templar.

Most of the founding fathers of the USA were freemasons. Even to this day the symbolism still exists on the dollor bill.

I read a bit about them online a good while back. Wikipedia has some info on them. But the problem is how do you decide what to believe and what not to believe...
