AOH Division #1 Yonkers Water Station at the Chili Hilly 5k Walk/Run


A wet and rainy day did not dampen the enthusiasm of participants of the North Yonkers Scholarship Foundation’s 7th Annual Chili Hilly 5k Run/Walk which was held this past weekend in Yonkers.

Division members assisted the event organizers by manning one of the many water stations located along the route.  Thanks to the many members who volunteered and didn’t mind getting a little wet for a good cause!

Yonkers Endorses McGuiness Principles









Yonkers City Council First to Endorse
The McGuinness Principles

 
Members of the Yonkers City Council and AOH at City Hall


     On Tuesday, September 25 Yonkers City Council became the first major city to unanimously adopt the McGuinness Principles.

     The impetus came from Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) Myles Scully Division One Yonkers and its president Kevin Ellis. The council meeting was attended by officers and members from national, New York State and all of Westchester divisions, as well as LAOH members, officers of the United Irish Counties, Hudson Valley Irish Center, Police Emerald Society of Westchester County and many Yonkers residents. 

     AOH National Director Dan Dennehy and Division One past President Bob Stauf testified for the McGuinness Principles.

     An AOH press release stated that Dennehy testified as a proud son of Yonkers. He recognized that the City of Yonkers has long embraced the rights of all citizens, including its large Irish American community.

     The McGuinness Principles seeks the same for all in Ireland, by instilling a bill of rights, language equality, justice on legacy crimes and self-determination through a referendum on Irish unity.

     Stauf then testified that Yonkers was the first City Council to adopt the MacBride Principles and had issued the first proclamation that Gerry Adams received during his first visit to the U.S. Stauf thanked Councilman John Rubbo for proposing the resolution and Councilman Mike Breen and Council President Mike Khader for their enthusiastic support.

     Rubbo remarked that 20 years ago the Good Friday Agreement was ratified by more than 70 percent of the voters in the north of Ireland, yet much needs to be done so that McGuinness’ legacy may be fulfilled.  He also recognized the AOH for keeping the issues of Ireland on their agenda.

     Khader said that he studied the McGuinness Principles and the need for these principles is not unique to the north of Ireland. Truth, fairness, and an even playing field are principles we should all live by regardless of race, religion, color, creed or political party and that is why he proudly supported the resolution. 


     “This was an important first step.” said Yonkers AOH President Kevin Ellis, “Tonight’s City Council endorsement of The McGuinness Principles sends a clear and forceful message that the Good Friday Agreement must be fully implemented without exception.”



     The McGuinness Principles were then adopted 7-0.
