The Ancient Order of Hibernians has frequently been referred to as a Catholic equivalent of the Orange Order, and indeed its original structure was not dissimilar to that of the Orange Order. It also organised public parades on special occasions, such as St. Patrick's Day and Lady's Day (15 August). These were accompanied by bands, banners and members wore green coloured sashes. But the aims of the Ancient Order of Hibernians were very different, since it was set up to defend the Catholic faith and promote Irish Nationalism.

The Order peaked in terms of popularity and membership in the early part of this century. By 1905, it had 13,000 members, the vast majority of whom were from a working-class Catholic background, despite the fact that membership was condemned by the Catholic Church. The Order experienced some problems around the end of the 19th century when there were various splits within the organisation
