Welcome to the Hibo's

Welcome to 


   Welcome to the historical Ancient Order of Hibernians Michael Dougherty Division 1 in Bristol, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  Our Division started in 1883 in Bristol Borough Pennsylvania by a group of forward looking Irish gentlemen. In 1891 this group of Hibernians raised enough money and purchased a parcel of property from the Corson family farm in Bristol area known as the Kettle .  In 1892 these Hibernians then built their Hibernian Hall. It still stands where they built it and has been in constant use as our Hibernian Hall since the beginning of 1893. Consequently we have the oldest Purpose built, same location, continuous use Hibernian Hall in the United States.  Our Division is considered the Irish Center of Bucks County because our Division is the first, it is the oldest and largest AOH Division in Bucks County. 

Over the years our members have stood for and upheld our Organizations Motto " Friendship, Unity, Christian Charity". By Doing so the Irish men of Division 1 have been able to provide community services for needful charities over all those years, including, charitable food kitchens and services, local Churches, School assistance, sports programs and of course great get togethers. 

Our initials AOH may tell the story best. There are those who say it means Add One Hour and are describing the easy going, no rush attitude of many of its members, while America’s Only Hope has been used to define the loyalty of the Irish to the principles of their adopted land. In any case, its members are best described by the statement,

       "To be Irish is a Blessing, To be a Hibernian is an Honor."
