A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

We are the Ladies Ancient Order Of Hibernians, St. Brigid Division # 1 located in Monroe County, Pennsylvania.

The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians was organized in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1894 as the “Daughters of Erin,” which pledged itself to God and Country. At the National Convention of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (organized in 1836 in New York) held in Saratoga Springs in 1906, the name of the organization was changed to the Ladies Auxiliary to the Ancient Order of Hibernians and functioned as a separate organization. At the National Convention in 1984 held in Albany, New York, the name was changed to the “Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians.” At its founding, the primary purpose of the LAOH was to protect young immigrant Irish girls, assist them in securing employment, and provide social interaction with Irish and Irish Americans to help them from becoming homesick and discouraged.

The motto of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians is “Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.” St. Brigid is the patron saint of our organization. Our purpose is to promote Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity among our members, to foster and sustain loyalty to our country and community, to aid and advance by legitimate means the aspirations and endeavors of all Irish people for a Irish Republic which shall include all 32 counties of Ireland, to promote Irish history, traditions, and culture, and to support the Church through mission work and Catholic action activities.

Our organization is open to all Catholic women who are of Irish descent or married to someone of Irish descent and at least 16 years of age.

We are currently looking for new members to join us.

Our meetings are held the third Sunday of the month at the Pocono Inne Town in Stroudsburg, PA unless otherwise noted. Please bring any friends along who may be interested in joining us.

2011 St. Patrick's Day Parade Grand Marshall Dinner

Honoring Drs. Joe and Rose Mattioli

The impact of Drs. Joe and Rose Mattioli’s Pocono Raceway has gone far beyond the world of auto racing to become an economic and social center of Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains region.

The Mattioli family’s philanthropic efforts in education and health care continue to improve the lives of everyone they touch. “Doc” and Rose have never stopped re-investing in the racetrack, nor have they ever stopped improving the lives of the people around them.
