Membership in the AOH

Application Process

The AOH accepts members throughout the year at monthly regular membership meetings. The full membership votes on each new member… Only after you’ve been voted in as a full member (must be Irish by birth or descent, a practicing Catholic, and a male over age 16) can you attend regular membership meetings. Until then, though, join us after our meetings (usually 8:30/8:45) and/or at ANY of our events.

You can apply to be an Associate Member, and are not required to be Irish or Catholic. Benefits vary from those who are Full Members.

The Father Abram J. Ryan Division is happy to announce a newly formed ladies division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Anyone that might be interested in joining the new division of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians (L.A.O.H.) please contact President of the Louisville LAOH through their website.
