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 120 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 2014 Polar Plunge in Long Branch, NJ. The event was held on Sunday, January 12th and was sponsored by our brothers from AOH Monmouth County Division 2 to help raise funds for Catholic Education. Our group raised funds for our local beneficiary: The Family of Sam Nugent. Sam was a resident of River Edge, NJ. He recently lost his courageous battle with ALS (Lou Gherig's disease).
