The AOH is an Irish-Catholic fraternal organization that supports numerous charities in Denver. There are nearly 100 members in the Denver area – not all ancient – who range from their early twenties to the mid-80s and from all walks of life. It is the oldest and largest Irish cultural organization in the U.S., with roots going back 300 years to groups of the same name in Ireland. The Order provides a continuing bridge to Ireland for those who are generations removed from there and sponsors many programs that promote Irish Heritage.
