The Ancient Order of Hibernians is a Catholic Irish-American fraternal organization, founded in New York City in 1836.  The AOH in America traces it’s origins to a parent organization by the same name, which has existed in Ireland for over 300 years.

The AOH in America has provided a continuing bridge with Ireland for those Irish Americans who are generations removed from their country of origin.  Many AOH Divisions sponsor children from the north of Ireland in the summer programs like “Project Children.”  The Order sponsors many programs associated with promoting our Irish Heritage.  Irish study programs are sponsored at several American Universities including Hofstra University.  And scholarship at universities like Notre Dame and many others are sponsored by the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

The AOH in Nassau County seeks candidates for a new Junior Division.  They will be joining on of the finest Irish Catholic organizations in the world.  AOH Junior Divisions are made up of Irish-American Catholic boys between the ages of 8 and 16 years.  They will be asked to fulfill and follow our motto of: “Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.” Together they will meet with like minded friends and preserve Irish Culture through language, art, music, and sports.  They will also be introduced into a social atmosphere of the Irish American community.

If you know a qualified applicant please let us know.  They can fill out an application and begin meeting people who will become their friends.  Please forward completed applications to Jim Henry, Organizer, Ancient Order of Hibernians, Nassau County Board at
