Hibernians host display of relics
Wednesday, March 10, 2010
CATHEDRAL DEANERY — The Ancient Order of Hibernians St. Patrick’s Division will host a special exhibit, “Sacred Relics: History of the Irish in Cincinnati,” on Sunday, March 14, 1:00-7:00 p.m., at St. Xavier Church, 607 Sycamore St., in downtown Cincinnati.
The exhibit is a visual display involving photos and artifacts of the Irish in Cincinnati from 1847 to the 1900s, supplied by some of their descendants who have saved family relics. Of particular interest to historians and genealogists may be the important role that Cincinnati’s Irish immigrants have played in the larger story of the diaspora in America.
