Ancient Order of Hibernians
Col. David B. Kelly, Middlesex County Division 1

Middlesex County Division 1 AOH was originally chartered in 1887.  The division was re established and chartered in 1997 in South Amboy, NJ.  The organization was able to acquire the old Library in town which is located on the corner of Second St. and Steven's Ave.  The building originaly a play house and later the Second Baptist church since the mid 19th century.  The building still retains the beautiful old stained glass windows and the steeple of its former life.  The members remodeled the building to suite the needs of the Hibernians and the community.  We offer the use of our building to the community for weddings, christenings, and various other family and civic functions.  Catering is also available by Bantry Bay Catering.

The First Treasurer was Col. David B. Kelly, the 7th Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police and upon his passing, the Division adopted his name in his honor.

 

 

In 2005, the Division instituted a marching Pipe & Drum Band, the "Col. D. B. Kelly Pipes & Drums", which is continuously growing in number and teaches both pipers and drummers.

 

 

Middlesex County Division 1 has become an intricate part of the community. We pride ourselves on the  philanthropy we established within the church and our community. The Division also plays a vital roll  along with the South Amboy Parade Committee in the organization of the South Amboy St. Patrick's Day Parade held on the Saturday prior to St. Patrick's Day.

The Division meets the first Thursday of every month at 8:00pm.
