The AOH is an Irish-Catholic fraternal organization that has helped support numerous charities in Denver. It currently has more than 85 members in the Denver area -- not all necessarily ancient – ranging in age from their early twenties to mid-80s and from all walks of life. It is the oldest and largest Irish cultural organization in the U.S., with roots back 300 years to groups of the same name in Ireland.

 

The Order also has provided a continuing bridge with Ireland for those who are generations removed from our country. The AOH sponsors many of the programs associated with promoting our Irish Heritage.
