Local organisations which are overseen by higher bodies have their own laws and Masonic Lodges are no differ. These are referred to as byelaws.


Every Masonic Lodge is strictly regulated by the Laws and Constitutions of The Grand Lodge of Ireland. In addition to these rules each subordinate Lodge has their own byelaws, as described above, which have to be conformed to by Lodge members.


Masonic byelaws cover such topics as:


- Initiation fees and procedures


- Accounts


- Administrative matters


- Committee meetings
