About Town

The Ancient Order of Hibernians Irish Brigade Division No. 1 of Medina County presented a check and a sack of diapers earlier this year to BirthCare of Medina County.

The Hibernian brothers collected money at their Christmas party in December to assist this Catholic Charities agency. BirthCare’s mission is to provide emergency assistance and sympathetic support to families with young children to help assure their safety, warmth and health.

The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America is an Irish-Catholic men’s organization that was founded in New York in 1836 and currently has members located throughout the United States. For more information on the AOH, contact Joe Casey at 330-219-9770 or
