The Black Jack Kehoe Division 4, Delaware County website of The Ancient Order of Hibernians.

The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America is an Irish Catholic organization whose purpose is to promote friendship, unity, and Christian charity. Our mission is to assist the people of Ireland in establishing a free and united Ireland while lending aid to the sick, aged, blind, and infirmed in our community by participation in Catholic Action activities.

Roots of the Ancient Order of Hibernians stem from Ireland in the Defenders and the Ribbonmen, Catholic agrarian movements of the 18th and 19th centuries but its largest membership is now in the United States, where it was founded in New York City May 4, 1836 at St. James Church located near the old Five Points neighborhood.
