Joyce 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 Joyce Irish surname. The Joyce 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.

Illustrated in this parchment are:

  • Book of Kells inspired artwork
  • St.Patrick
  • The Cross of Cong
  • The Ardagh Chalice
  • Killarney Lakes
  • The Irish Harp
  • The Currachs of the West of Ireland
  • Glendalough Monastery
  • Blarney Castle
  • Traditional thatched houses of Ireland
  • Ahenny Cross
  • Cross of Muiredach
  • The Burgh O’Malley Chalice
  • The crests of the four provinces of Ireland: Ulster, Connaught, Leinster, Munster
  • The Tara Brooch
  • The Celtic Torc 

The Joyce Coat Of Arms Story

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

Although Joyce is not exclusively an Irish name it has a long history in Ireland and is particularly associated with Connaught.  The first recorded Joyce in Ireland was one Thomas de Jorce or Joyce. He was probably a Welshman or at least had some connection with the Welsh marcher lords who were a mixture of Welsh, Normans and Flemings. In 1283 he married the daughter of O’Brien, Prince of Thomond, and went by sea to County Galway.   The group which established itself subsequently on the Galway Mayo border initially paid tribute to the O’ Flahertys but some indication of their eventual status must be that the land they occupied became known as Joyce's country. They adopted the Irish custom of having a chief of the name and the composition Book of Connaught records this chief as inhabiting the barons of Ross in Co. Galway. The great majority of Joyces are still to be found in counties Galway & Mayo. In Irish the name is Senighe, which has given rise to the variation Shoye in Ballinrobe.  A curious attribute of the Joyces is their reputation for being unusually tall.   Probably the most famous representative of the name is James Joyce, the novelist (1882-1941), author of 'Dubliners,’ ‘Ulysses,’ etc. Many others have distinguished themselves in the church, including William Joyce, Archbishop of Tuam (1487-150), two Archbishops of Armagh and three Galway Joyces who played a considerable part in setting up the Dominican College at Louvain in 1648. Among those who emigrated to the U.S.A. was Robert Dwyer Joyce (1830-1863), physician and poet, and brother to Patrick Weston Joyce, historian and author of ‘Irish Names of Places.’

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!
