The Ancient Order of Hibernians is a Catholic, IrishAmerican Fraternal Organization. Locally, the John P. Kelly Division 1 of Toledo, OH hosts many events to assist our organization in its mission to promote Irish culture. All of our events are open to the public. Please come and join us! See how much fun it is to be HIBERNIAN!
The AOH was founded in New York City 4 May,1836. The Order can trace its roots back to a parent organization, of the same name, which has 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.
Hibernia is the Roman name for Ireland.
