STRUCTURE OF THE ORDER

The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland

This is the governing body of 300 representatives drawn from County Grand Lodges together with one representative from each District.

|

County Grand Orange Lodges

These are composed of representatives drawn from each District in the County. There are 12 County Grand Lodges.

Antrim, Armagh, Belfast, Cavan, Donegal, Down, Fermanagh, Leitrim, City of Londonderry, Londonderry County, Monaghan and Tyrone.

|

District Lodges

These are composed of representatives from each Private Lodge in the District. There are 125 District Lodges based on a geographical area.

|

Private Lodges

There are 1400 of these. This is the power base of the Institution and every member must belong to a Private Lodge.

Each of the the above groups operate in a formal business manner, with a chain of command, including annually elected officers, some of which have more grander titles than other organisations may use. In many ways the Institution is driven from the bottom, from the private Lodges, where members meet more regularly and organise more local events.

Contrary to popular opinion, private Lodges are more likely to spend time discussing Orange Hall renovations and dinner dances than organising rallies and protests!
