WELCOME TO THE NEW JERSEY LADIES ANCIENT ORDER of HIBERNIANS, INC.

The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America, Inc. was organized in New York City in 1836. The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians was organized in Omaha, Nebraska in 1894 as the Daughters of Erin. The Order pledged itself to God and Country. At the National Convention in Saratoga Springs in 1906, the Ladies received permission from the National Chaplain and the National President of the A.O.H. to function as a separate organization. The name was changed to the Ladies Auxiliary to the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America. In 1984, at the National Constitutional Convention held in Albany, NY, the Ladies voted to change their name to the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians in America.

The motto of the Ladies is FRIENDSHIP, UNITY AND CHRISTIAN CHARITY. Our patron saint is Saint Brigid of Ireland.

The preamble of our National Constitution states that the intent and purpose of the Ladies is to promote Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity, to foster and sustain loyalty to the Roman Catholic Church and to the United States of America among its members, to aid and advance by all legitimate means the aspirations and endeavors of the Irish people for complete and absolute independence, and to foster the ideals and perpetuate the history and traditions of the Irish people and to promote Irish culture.
