Wallace is confused on the difference between
the AOH in America and those who call themselves the
AOH in Derry.
AOH in America was started in 1836 in New York and
Pennsylvania. It has no affiliation or connection
with AOH in Ireland.
National President, Ned McGinley oversees the largest
Irish organization in the world including other countries,
BUT, not Ireland. This is the reason, to answer Mr
Wallace, that there is no interferance.

mission of the AOH in America written in its Constitution
is the Protection of the Roman Catholic Church and
its clergy. The secondary mission is to do what it

help their particular Irish causes, like hosting children
or, as some have, sending cards to prisoners in Ireland.
a few members of my division march in Derry every

are represented. All Mr. Wallace has to do is ask
around at the end of January when they start arriving
in a Derry AOH is an oxymoron, as to the mission of
the AOH. Could infiltrators be possible? It's food
for thought. What better organization to put spys
and corrupters in. That is a job for those in Ireland
to sweep their own streets. The AOH in America is
alive and well still growing and living up to its
