A Sisterhood of Irish and Irish-American Catholic Women The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians is a National organization officially recognized in Omaha Nebraska in 1894 as the "Daughters of Erin.\" It is felt that the Ancient Order of Hibernians had always had women as a support group but due to the \"Secret\" societal aspect of the Order the men chose not to acknowledge the women. However being of the "Matriarchal\" heritage that is ours the women sought their own identity and finally at the National Convention in Omaha Nebraska in May 1894 the men relented and allowed the formation of the "Daughters of Erin.\" In 1906 the name was changed to "Ladies Auxiliary to the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America". In 1984 the Ladies voted to change their name to "The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians. In 2004 we have been officially incorporated on our own as “Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Inc.”
The LadiesAOH has changed in many ways over the decades but still we hold true to our MOTTO of "Friendship Unity and Christian Charity.” We are pledged to God and Country.
