This flag flew over a coalition base in Afghanistan for 9 minutes, 11 seconds to commemorate the dastardly and cowardly murder of almost 3000 Americans at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Please include Adam in your prayers for Adam McQueen as he has returned to finish his tour in Afghanistan and is in harm's way once again.

The Ancient Order of Hibernians - Monroe County, NY Division 7 was organized in Rochester, New York in 1896.
The Division was organized to assemble Irish Catholic men of the area in a spirit of Brotherhood and to foster a spirit of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.

Colonel Patrick O'Rorke biography
The Division is named after Colonel Patrick O'Rorke, a hero at Gettysburg and who's final resting place is in Rochester, NY.


The Division meets at 7:30 PM on the 1st Monday of each month at Johnny's Irish Pub located at 1382 Culver Road in Rochester.

Are you:

  • A practicing Catholic?
  • Irish, by either birth or descent?
  • A male of at least 16 years of age?

If you answered "yes" to all three, you may be interested in the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America. Besides being the oldest Catholic, lay organization in the country, the "A.O.H." is the largest Irish, fraternal organization in the world.

The A.O.H. originated in Ireland during the dreaded days of the "Penal Code" imposed by Oliver Cromwell. Our organization began by protecting the lives of Ireland’s priests - ensuring the preservation of our Faith. This tradition was continued by Irish immigrants as they faced the hardships of assimilating to the then Protestant culture of early America.

Today, the A.O.H. is still promoting the Catholic faith and the culture of Ireland. As well as thriving on the National and State levels, the A.O.H. is alive and well here in Rochester.

American men, 16 years of age or older who are practicing Catholics of Irish birth or descent are eligible for admission into The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America, Inc. If you are interested in joining the Colonel Patrick O'Rorke Division, please contact the Division hotline at (585)234-7469 .
