Conroy 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 Conroy Irish surname. The Conroy 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 Ardagh Chalice

The Conroy Coat Of Arms Story

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

There are several variations of this surname, each deriving from different Gaelic septs whose names have all been anglicised in the same way to Conry, Conroy and Mulconry. The most important of these were the O’ Maolconaire whose estate was the Parish of Clooncraff in County Roscommon. This was a family of hereditary poets and chroniclers, who served the powerful O’ Connors of Connaught. A distinguished representative of this time was Fearfasa O’ Mulconry who, together with these others, compiled the most famous chronicle in Irish history ‘The Annals of the four Masters', completed in 1636. Maurice O’ Mulconry, also of  this family, is known for his exceptionally beautiful copy of the book of Fenagh, made in 1517. Still earlier, John O’ Mulconry, an eminent Gaelic poet, presided over a school of Poets at Arkyle, from 1440 to 1470. The chapiain in the Spanish Armada was one, Reverend Florence Conry of this sept, who also helped to found the Irish College at Louvain, and attended Hugh O'Donnell at his death. Two other important Connaught Septs were the O Conraoi of East Galway and the Mac Conraoi, whose territory was Moycullen on Galway Bay, their chief was known as ‘Lord of Delvin of the two lakes’ - the two lakes being corrib and Lurgan, ancient names for Galway day. Padraic O Conaire, one of the most celebrated of modern Irish authors originated in this area. In the 16th and 17th centuries, because of the similarity in sound of Mac Conraoi and ‘Mac an Righ’ meaning ‘Son of the King', the name was often mistranslated to ring, and in the 19th century, the ancestral seat, Ballymaconry became Ridgstown.

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!
