Conner 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 Conner Irish surname. The Conner 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.

The Conner Coat Of Arms Story

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

This name, O’ Conchobhair in Gaelic ranks among the five most prominent in Ireland. Originally it belonged to six distinct septs, four of which still survive in great numbers. The most influential of these was the O’ Connor sept of Connaught, which was descended from Conchobhar, King of Connaught in the mid-tenth century. This family produced the last two Kings of an Ireland, namely Turlough O’ Connor and his son Rory, both men had to contend with fierce warring factions at home and during his kingship, Rory was forced to submit to a relentless wave of Anglo- Norman invasions in 1179 when were to utterly change the face of Ireland. Later descendants of this sept included several prominent scholars and authors: Matthew, born in 1773, who wrote the ‘history of the Irish Catholics; and Charles Owen O’ Connor who was President of the Royal Irish Academy at the end of the nineteenth century. Another important O’ Connor sept, whose chief O’ Connor Kerry resided at Carrigafoyle Castle, held sway over extensive territories in North Kerry. This sept produced eminent commanders for the Irish Brigades in France, and three prominent nineteenth century Irish- Americans: brothers Michael and James, who became United States bishops, and Patrick Edward Connor, a frontiersman, Indian fighter and confederate soldier. Two other groups bearing this name are the O’ Connors of Corcomoroe in North Clare, and the O’ Connors of Offaly, who trace their origins back to Cathaoir Mor, a second century King of Ireland. This sept was constantly at war, and finally dispossessed of most of its lands in the sixteenth century. A fifth sept, the O’ Connors of Glengiven, were descended from a third century King of Munster, Clan, Son of Oilioll Olum. The prefix ‘O’ disappeared in the period of Gaelic suppression and, in some cases of the name, it has not been revived; hence, today the name can be seen as O’ Connor, O’ Conor, Connor and Conner.

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!
