The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) is America’s oldest Irish Catholic fraternal organization. It was founded in 1836 in New York. Today, the AOH fosters and preserves Irish culture throughout the United States. It provides a network for Irish-American men. And it contributes to local communities and advocates for Irish-Americans on social and policy issues. You can donate to the Alexandria AOH using this link.
