Flaherty 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 Flaherty Irish surname. The Flaherty 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.

The Flaherty Coat Of Arms Story

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

This sept, known as Ó Flaithbheartaigh in Gaelic, held sway originally on the Eastern Shores of Lough Corrid. The Norman penetration in the thirteenth century forced the westward towards Connemara where their chieftains established themselves as Lords of Moycullen, and Lords of Jar-Connaught. In the vase in accessible wilderness which included the Aran Island. The warlike tribe reigned supreme until the eighteenth century. They had a fearful reputation. An inscription on the West Gate of Galway city in 1577 read: ‘from the ferocious of fiaherties, God defend us’. Legends surround them: on a Murky Island beyond Claggan lies hen’s castle, said to have been built by a witen and her ben, for an O’ Flaherty chieftain with the promise that, in time of Siege, the hen would lay enough eggs to enable the Garrison to hold out. O'Flaherty killed the hen in a fit of temper, and paid the penalty. A love for their wild and beautiful district ran deep in the blood. This is evident in the famous ‘Ogygia; a chronicle of Irish history written by the last recognised chief of the name, Rory O’Flaherty in the seventeenth century. Another less important O’Flaherty sept, whose name is occasionally anglicised to O'Laverty, was found in Ulster. Their chief was Lord of Aileach and was also known as the Tanist of Tyrone. Most O’Flaherty are still, however, found in County Galway.

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!
