Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity. The Ancient Order of Hibernians was founded in 1836 to make a difference; by consistently weighing in on issues of Irish-American concern; by vigorously opposing injustice and discrimination in the North of Ireland; by standing steadfast in its quest for a united Ireland; by recognizing both commitment and excellence through the awarding of its prestigious Sean MacBride and John F. Kenned Awards; by offering study-abroad grants for education in Ireland; by donating millions of dollars annually to charitable causes; by providing the opportunity to experience IRISH CULTURE by promoting lectures, films and discussion groups; by teaching Irish language, dancing, piping and drumming; by making hundreds of thousands of dollars available annually through its National, State, County Boards, and Divisions for study here in the United States; by continuing to fund Hibernian scholarships at Notre Dame University; by establishing the First Chair of Celtic Studies at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.; by successfully campaigning for recognition of Commodore John Barry as the First Flag Officer of the United States Navy; and by continually demonstrating that Hibernians stand by the motto of "Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity."
AOH is the oldest and largest Irish Catholic organization in the United States. AOH is a place to meet like minded Irish Americans who share the same values and beliefs. Because of our size, the AOH has a powerful lobby that is used to defend Irish causes. We believe in a United Ireland and will condemn any defamation of the Irish People. Through it's charitable arm, Hibernian Charity, a 501c-3 not-for-profit, the AOH is able to raise money for a number of Irish and Catholic causes in the this country and in Ireland. In Iowa, there are Divisions in Des Moines, Waterloo and Dyersville, and the new division returns to Dubuque (of which the first division was originally founded on April 5th, 1891).
