Hennessy 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 Hennessy Irish surname. The Hennessy 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 Hennessy Coat Of Arms Story

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

The Gaelic form of this name is O’Haonghasa, which means ‘descendant of Aonghus' or Angus. It belonged to several distinct septs located in the southern half of Ireland. the most important of these dwelt near Kilbeggan in northern Offaly where they were Lords of Clan Cholgain. A branch of this family settled on the northern side of the Liffey where the counties of Meath and Dublin meet, and became chiefs of Gailenga Beg, Other branches moved to Tipperary and Clare where they were called Henchy. Another group was established in southwest Cork near Ross Bay. Indeed, the place name, Ballyhennessy, which means ‘homestead of the Hennessys' is found in Clare, Cork, and Kerry.  The most famous Hennessys have been connected with France. The family famed for its cognac is descended from Richard Hennessy, born in county Cork in 1720, who, like many Irish gentlemen, fled to the continent to become an officer in the Irish Brigade of the French army. He later settled in Cognac. His son became a French peer and married into another family famed for brandy, the Martells. Dr. Florence Henchy, from Clare, was tried in 1758 as a French secret agent, and the modern Jean Hennessy, born in 1874, was a prominent journalist and director of the newspaper, 'Le Quotidien!  Nineteenth-century Hennessys achieved fame closer to home. Henry Hennessy was a professor of engineering at Newman's University, Dublin; Sir John Pope Hennessy was an Irish M.P. at Westminster. William Hennessy was a Gaelic scholar, and his namesake, born in 1839, became a popular landscape painter in America.

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!
