Young heads take Orange Orange lodge reins

By Staff Reporter

An Orange lodge in Co Down is now led by two of the youngest men ever to hold senior positions in the institution.

Joel Kelly (20) and Charlie Davidson (19) have respectively become worshipful master and deputy master of Greyabbey LOL 1592.

Joel said Orangeism was very much "part of his culture and heritage".

Charlie, a trainee butcher, added he was "very honoured" to serve as deputy master.

"It is a privilege to be elected to the position as generations of my family have been members of the lodge," he explained.
