Akron Hibernians mark 1916

May 16, 2016

The Summit County Ohio AOH Board, along with the Mark Heffernan and St. Brendan Divisions, held a “Rebels Night” at the Heffernan Division Hall as part of their 1916 Rising commemoration. Members also attended Mass at St. Vincent De Paul, a church the Irish in Akron built. Fathers Norm Douglas and AOH Chaplain Tom McCann concelebrated the well-attended Mass. Afterwards, and as seen in the above photo, Paul Callahan read the Proclamation on the front steps of the church. Afterwards a brunch was served at the St. Brendan Division Hall.
