Ancient Order of Hibernians
1836 – 1936
Our fathers chained in prisons dark
Were still in heart and conscience free
How sweet would be their children’s fate
If we, like them , could die for thee
Faith of our fathers! Holy faith! We will be true to thee till death
This tablet is erected by the members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of the County of New York in connection with the centennial celebration of the order as a tribute to the devotion of its members to Holy Mother Church and to those principles of religious freedom which form the cornerstone of American liberty
