The Barry Family Crest

Created by Edmond McGrath (RIP) in the 1970s, these Irish prints were rediscovered in 2020 after 40 years in safe storage. Beautifully arranged in this Irish coat of arms parchment is an artistic celebration of the Barry Irish surname. The Barry family crest is illustrated at the center and surrounded by famous Celtic symbols of Ireland. These illustrations are a wonderful dedication to Irish last names.

Imagine having this beautiful story of your name hanging on your living room wall for all to study over a glass of wine, or to take a glimpse at it when having your Barry's tea on the couch. There is so much to take in. This parchment is an heirloom for many generations yet to come. It's a wonderful reminder of your Irish heritage.

On your living room wall, you will always be reminded of your Irish origins and it will be a show stopper for visiting friends and family. Presenting a family coat of arms gift is a truly special gift for the home for someone special who has that unique Irish connection.

On this parchment, the Killarney lakes take center stage above the heraldic shield whilst many Irish Celtic symbols and famous monuments surround it.

  • Book of Kells inspired artwork
  • St.Patrick
  • The Cross of Cong

The Barry Coat Of Arms Story

Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Barry family history parchment:

This family takes its surname from the island off the coast of Glamorgan, for the earliest bearer of the name, Philip de Barri came from Wales to Ireland with the Anglo-Norman Invasion of 1179. He was rewarded with large areas of land in County Cork. His issue formed several septs in the manner of the ancient tribes, the most important of these being Barry Mor and Barry Roe, after whom the modern baronies were named. To this day the majority of Barrys in Ireland are found in Cork or South Munster. Despite a tragedy in 1507 when the principal men of the Barry Roe sept were drowned while returning from a pilgrimage to Spain, the family as a whole prospered and became peers of the realm under three titles: Baron Barry, Viscounts of Buttevant, and Earls of Barrymore.  Among the eminent people who have shared this name are two with theatrical connections, "Lo” Barry an early seventeenth-century writer, may be regarded as the first Irish dramatist while Spranger Barry, a talented actor and contemporary of Garrick built theatres in Dublin and Cork. The surname was also well represented in the medical profession. John Milner Barry, born in 1768, introduced vaccination to Ireland, Sir Samuel Barry (1696-1776) and Sir David Barry (1780-1835) were well-known physicians and writers. Sir Charles Barry designed the houses of Parliament, London, in the  mid-nineteenth century, and John Barry, born in 1745 near Wexford, rose to fame as the “Father of the American Navy.” One, Captain Barry had the “luck of the Irish.” He was arrested by French revolutionaries during the terror and condemned to death. A letter written in Irish proved his guilt, but was unreadable to his captors-he escaped with his life!

Just What I Was Hoping For

The team at Gifts of Ireland did an outstanding job creating my husband's family crest shield based upon the original design. It's exactly what I was hoping for. Their team is excellent to work with and very timely in their correspondence. The family history sheet is a bonus and nice to have. Thank you!
