About the AOH

The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America is a Catholic, Irish-American Fraternal Organization founded in New York City in 1836. The Order can trace its roots back to a parent organization of the same name that had existed in Ireland for over 300 years. However, while the organizations share a common thread, the North American A.O.H. is a separate and much larger organization. The Board of Erin and the Board of America cooperate on projects and had a joint board meeting in Dundalk, Ireland in 1995. The Order evolved from a society formed in 1565, in Ireland, to protect the priests, who risked immediate death, to keep the Catholic Faith alive, in occupied Ireland, during the reign of England’s King Henry VIII. In 1697, when England implemented its dreaded Penal Laws in Ireland, secret societies were formed across Ireland to aid and comfort the clergy and the people by whatever means available. Similarly, the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America was founded May 4, 1836 at New York’s St. James Church, to protect the clergy, and church property from the “Know Nothings” and their followers.

the vast influx of Irish Immigrants fleeing The Great Hunger, An Gorta Mor, in Ireland, in the late 1840’s prompted a growth of various social societies in the United States, to aid these refugees, the largest of which was, and continues to be, the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

Active across the United States today, the Order seeks to aid newly arrived Irish and those Irish-Americans from generations removed, both socially and politically. The many Divisions and club facilities located throughout the United States traditionally have been among the first to welcome the Irish immigrants and preserve Irish culture. Here, the Irish Culture: language, arts, dance, music, and sports are fostered and preserved. Newcomers can meet some of “their own” and are introduced to the social atmosphere of the Irish-American community. The A.O.H has been at the forefront on Irish issues such as: economic incentives (both here and in Ireland); Peace with Justice in a United Ireland; the Human Rights issues addressed in the MacBride Principles Legislation; Genocide Curriculum Legislation; freedom of religion; and Respect for Life.

The Order has provided a continuing bridge with Ireland for those Irish-Americans who are generations removed
