THE 175TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE A.O.H


Hibernians Mark 175th Anniversary with Gala Celebration and Mass in New York City

 Division One Lead the Weschester Group of Hibernians Up Mulberry Street
                       
                       The Myles Scully Division was honored to take part in the Ancient Order of Hibernians National Celebration marking the 175th Anniversary of our worthy organization this past Saturday in New York City.

                       The day began with Hibernians from across the United States gathering on Mulberry Street in New York City's Little Italy neighborhood for a grand parade through the area that was originally known as the "Five Points".  The parade was led by A.O.H. National President Seamus Boyle, members of the National Board, and Division One N.Y. County, the first ever Division to be created in the United States in 1836. 

The Parade Included Hibernians From Across the Country


 
                     The parade continued to the steps of the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral, where the assembled crowd attended a mass celebrated by the Basilica's Rector Monsignor Donald Sakano . He welcomed the large crowd of Hibernians and assured everyone in attendance that Old St. Patrick's "Will always be your home".

                   Members then joined everyone at the celebration and party held in the Basilica's school courtyard, where the tremendous amount of food and drink provided by the celebration committee assured that a wonderful time was had by all.

                     Members even took time out to sing "Happy Birthday" to Division Treasurer Mike Morley, with the help of a talented local musician. Happy 60th Birthday Mike!

                    The officers and members of Division One would like to thank and congratulate N.Y. County President Tom Beirne for his tireless efforts in making sure the weekends events were such a success.  Thanks also to the celebration committee for hours and hours of work to make sure the celebration went smoothly.

                    We hope to see everyone at the 200th Anniversary Celebration in 2036!
