Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians



  • Existence: 1836    

Historical Note

The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) was founded in 1836 in the United States as a movement of Irish Catholics in opposition to the growing atmosphere of anti-Catholicism in the United States. In 1894, Irish Catholic women formed the "Daughters of Erin." The name was changed in 1906 to the Ladies Auxiliary to the Ancient Order of Hibernians, and again in 1984 to the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians (LAOH).
