Agnes E. O’Leary
Suffolk County Aide to the Grand Marshal

Agnes O’Leary has spent her entire adult life in the service of others. For more than 30-years, Aggie, as she is affectionately known to family and friends, worked with the underserved population of the mentally and physically disadvantaged as a Registered Nurse. Aggie has been a member of the LAOH for over 30-years, following along with her father Irwin, brother Jim, late sister-in-law Judy, uncle and aunt Harry and Eileen Corcoran. Aggie served in many offices up the division, county, and state boards. She is a Past President of Our Lady of Knock Division 7, Past Suffolk County President and current NYS President. Aggie was a proud member of the Rosin Dubh Irish Pipe Band, and a past Suffolk County Hibernian of the Year. She is a life member of the Celtic Degree Team, a recipient of National Life Membership, and honored to have received the 2016 St. Brigid of Ireland Humanitarian Award. Aggie has served as a Eucharistic Minister in two parishes. She has been a coach to youth soccer, CYO basketball and Special Olympics Golf. When Aggie retired and moved into her retirement community, she continued in her active service to others. Within her retirement community Aggie is a member of her local Ladies American Legion, a past President of Ladies Par 3 Golf League and was Captain of the Community Dart Team. Aggie can often be heard speaking of her love for her “other family” and has created many special friendships with her brother & sister Hibernians. But nothing puts a spark in her eyes more than when she speaks of her family. Aggie is the proud mother of Peter & daughter-in-law Phyllis, adoring grandmother to Rachel Alice & Heather Bailey, and sister to Jim and MaryAnn, and the late Irwin. She feels blessed to call Madeline “Midge” Colwell her friend for 63-years.
