August 11, 1960 - October 19, 2016
Our group was established in River Edge, NJ. AOH State officials swore in our members during a ceremony that took place in Jersey City on June 8, 2007. Our Chapter has grown to over 100 members from all around Bergen County. We are dedicated to uniting Irish Catholic men in Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity. We are an active organization involved in a variety of charitable and social events throughout the year.
The Ancient Order of Hibernians is a Catholic, Irish American Fraternal Organization. The organization can trace its roots back to a parent organization, of the same name, which has existed in Ireland for over 300 years. However, while the organizations share a common thread, the North American AOH is a separate and much larger organization. The Order has also provided a continuing bridge with Ireland for those who are generations removed from the country.

Our Group participated in the 2016 Tank Pull to benefit the Military Wounded. The event was held on Sunday, June 26th in Clifton, NJ and was sponsored by the Knights of Columbus of Clifton.
Our group participated in the 35th Annual Bergen County St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday, March 13th. The parade was held in Bergenfield, NJ.

Congratulations to Steve Baxter and Pete Marion - our 2015 Hibernians of the Year!
