Hi, I was wondering if you might be able to tell me a bit about the history of this magnificent hat? It has been in our family for many years and we think that my great great grandfather belonged to the order and that he would have worn it, but sadly no photos exist. We can tell from the label it was made in Belfast. Thanking you in advance.

Most Dennis Kelly AOH Brothers and Friends will recognize this young lad from past St. Malachy visits. It is Ciaran McKenna. A St. Malachy Year 12 student Ciaran (Irish Flute) was awarded first place in the Advanced Instrumental Solo class (Traditional Music) at the Holywood ( N.Ireland) Music Festival. The adjudicator said Ciaran’s playing showed “great maturity and understanding” and the music flowed well throughout his performance. Ciaran was also delighted to receive a trophy for giving the best performance out of all the senior solo classes. Well done, Ciaran!

“THE CUT: THE JOURNEY OF THE MEN AND WOMEN OF DUFFY'S CUT”

Friday December 1st 7;30 P.M.,

7:30 PM- Haverford Library (Delco)

In this presentation, a film called "The Cut :The Journey of the Men and Women of Duffy's Cut,"will be shown. Afterwards, the film's director, Shawn Swords and Duffy's Cut Project Director Bill Watson,will update the story and answer questions. The film tells the story of 57 Irish railroad workers who arrived in Philadelphia to build mile 59 of the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad, and died within six to eight weeks of violence and cholera. The Irishmen were from Donegal, Tyrone and Derry in Ulster, with an average age of 22. A project, headed by Dr. Bill Watson and his brother Rev. Frank Watson, has been underway since 2002 to locate the graves of these workers and properly rebury them. To date, the graves of seven workers have been excavated. Work is ongoing to recover the remaining fifty bodies.

This is a Civic and Social Literacy Program of the PA Forward Initiative.

Location: Haverford Township Free Library, 1601 Darby Rd, Havertown, PA 19083

Family Picnic

Our Family Picnic is moving back to the Legion this year and will be held on August 6th from 1 pm to 5 pm or so. Be on the lookout for a “things we need” sign-up sheet from Pat O’Brien. As always the division will supply some food and the sign up request for desserts, snacks etc. will go out. We will have a DJ and most likely a guitar player or two. The whole family is welcome!
