The Ancient Order of Hibernians is a Catholic, Irish American Fraternal Organization founded in New York City on May 4th, 1836.


Division 22 was founded on March 6,1997 when Twenty six Philadelphia Firefighters decided to expand their Irish heritage. The number 22 coincides with local 22 of the Firefighters union and can be traced back to the Hibernia Hose Company which was designated Engine 22 when the Philadelphia Fire Department was formed as a paid service from the volunteer fire companies.


The Division chose to honor John Redmond a member of Ladder 11, who was killed in the line of duty while operating on the 5th alarm at the Rising Sun Baptist Church in South Philadelphia on January 28th 1994 .
