The Rev. John Whalen McGee Division One of the Ancient Order of Hibernians entered into an agreement with Aquinas College to help support the scholarship program for students wanting to go to Tully Cross. Their initial donation was $5000 in 2014. The agreement is to provide subsequent donation of at least $1000 per year.
This relationship is in accordance with fundamental tenants of the AOH; To foster the ideas and perpetuate the history and traditions of the Irish people; To promote Irish culture; To encourage civic participation.
The AOH Michigan Division sent a representative to Connemara and others hope to go.
The goal of the AOH is to build connections in the U.S. to expand FOC's reach and pool of possible donors.
