Gloucester County Irish Festival To Support Local Boy

The Gloucester County AOH is running their first full day festival to support a local boy and his family. Keane Patrick O’Brien is a 4 year old boy who has a rare nervous system disorder called leukodystrophy. Insurance companies are using the rare nature of the disorder as a basis to deny coverage which has left the family in need of support. An organization has been setup called the Keane Patrick O’Brien Foundation ( to help Keane and other children and families in the same situation. The AOH Brothers from Gloucester are now stepping up with a festival to support this good cause.
