The Irish Echo
The AOH marks another American birthday
By Denis P. McGowan
On May 4, 2018, the Ancient Order of Hibernians celebrated 182 years of their pride in their Irish heritage, Catholic faith, and a long record of fraternalism in the United States of America.
The AOH traces its origins back to the year 1565 in Ireland, when Irish Catholic men first banded together as the Defenders by Rory Oge O’More in the County Kildare, Province of Leinster.
In 1565, the Earl of Sussex issued a proclamation establishing a penalty of death for any priest found in the Province of Leinster. The head of a priest brought a higher reward than the head of a wolf.
