The AOH in Ireland was founded in the late seventeenth century for similar reasons particularly for the protection and preservation of the Catholic Clergy who were in peril of their lives under the Penal Laws. Today the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America has Divisions in over forty states; united with a common dedication to Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.

The Symbol of the Irish Harp

The harp has long been a symbol of Ireland. Perhaps the legends of it's magical powers comes from the time when the bards would sing and tell stories of famous events to the Irish kings and chiefs.

During the early 1500s, under the rule of Henry VIII, the harp was first depicted on Irish coins. That tradition is carried on today and the harp is also used for other official duties such as the Irish state seal, official documents and uniforms.
