We are the Sarpy County Nebraska Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) (A 5013C Charity) (Also referred to as The St Columbkille Ancient Order of Hibernians) .  The Ancient Order of Hibernians is a Catholic Irish-American Fraternal Organization founded in New York City on May 4, 1836. The Order can trace its roots back to a parent organization of the same name that has existed in Ireland for more than 300 years.  We are a divsion of this order.

What is our purpose:

(1)    To promote Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.

(2)    To foster and sustain loyalty to country and community.

(3)    To aid and advance by all legitimate means the aspirations and endeavors of the Irish people for complete and absolute independence, promoting peace and unity for all Ireland.

(4)    To foster the ideas and perpetuate the history and traditions of the Irish people.

(5)    To promote Irish Culture.

(6)    To encourage civic participation.

(7)    To encourage an equitable U.S. immigration law for Ireland and to cooperate with groups for a fair American Immigration Policy.

(8)    To accept and support, without prejudice, the concept of free expression of religious practice for the people of the world.

(9)    To protect and defend all life.

The AOH has consistently promoted and tried to preserve our ancient language, Gaelic-Irish
