  Membership in the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Inc. is confined to men 16 years and older who are practicing Roman Catholics of Irish birth or descent and who are citizens of United States of America or who have declared their intentions to become citizens of the United States of America.

  Associate memberships are also available to those who do not meet the aforementioned qualification.

   It is a standing rule that Applications for Membership that languish without action for longer than 6 months are discarded.
   Notifications for induction dates and times, through the Shamrock Degree, are sent to all applicants.
   Those who have applied prior to this 6 month period, and are serious about joining the A.O.H., need to reapply for admission and make arrangements to attend a Shamrock Degree ceremony within the next six month. 


 Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2018 dues. We currently have over 30 members who haven’t paid their dues for 2017. Arrears letters have been sent to all of you. We can no longer afford to carry the per capita and additional costs associated with members who choose not to pay their dues. Again, these monies are needed to help with our charitable contributions and off set our operating costs. Your immediate attention is needed to bring your 2017 dues up-to-date. You will be deleted from our roster if payment is not received by the end of August. If anyone has difficulty paying their dues, please let me know. We take care of each other. Also, let us know if you have an address change 


Our members worked hard to make bird feeders, headbands, baked goods and other crafts to sell at our table at “Irish Days”. We had a great time at our craft table and enjoyed the festivities.

We are excited to participate in the St. Patrick Day parade and events. Congratulations to Junior Marlaina Bartolillo, who is this year’s Maid of Erin, Grand Marshal- Marie Davenport, and Official Parade Starter-Alex Legos-Williams.

Our next meeting is Saturday March 10 at 10am. Please note the date change. We will learn to bake some Irish recipes and to speak a little Gaelic.

We welcome young ladies who are Irish-by birth/descent/adoption between the ages of six and eighteen that are practicing Catholics to apply for membership

To apply contact Amber Youngs at (607) 321-8071 or pick up an application at the Hall.
