Thank you to all those who attended


On Friday, March 3, 2023, The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) hosted their 89th Annual Grand Marshal's Ball at Long Island's renowned Oheka Castle in Huntington, NY to celebrate the 2023 Grand Marshal Greg Kennedy.

Every March, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division 4, gathers to celebrate the St. Patrick's Day holiday as they march through Huntington, New York. The Huntington parade is Long Island's oldest St. Patrick's Day parade, running for almost 90 years. Each year, the AOH selects an honored member of the community to represent the Division and the town of Huntington to serve as the parade's Grand Marshal. They celebrate this sacred honor at the annual Grand Marshal's Ball.

Past Grand Marshals include the region's most respected people, from politicians to local business owners and even clergy. Grand Marshals have the unique privilege of leading the parade procession through Huntington Village. This year the AOH is pleased to bestow this great honor to AOH Board Member, Past President, and proud local business owner Greg Kennedy.

Mr. Kennedy and the AOH look forward to seeing all their friends and fellow community members as we gather in fellowship and march to celebrate this annual event and our Irish heritage on Sunday, March 12, 2023, at 2:00 pm in Huntington Village. They would also like to thank all those who came out to celebrate with them at this year's Grand Marshal's Ball held on Friday, March 3, 2023. All those in attendance witnessed the recognition bestowed upon Greg as he was honored as this year's Grand Marshal. In Addition to Greg's celebration, attendees were entertained by Long Island's prestigious Petri Dancers from Doherty Petri School of Irish Dancing. The AOH also announced the winner of their annual trip to Ireland raffle.
