Beautifully arranged in this parchment and created by Edmond McGrath (RIP) in the 1970s and only rediscovered after 40 years in safe storage, we bring you a very special illustration that encompasses symbols of your Irish tribal heritage.

This parchment can be an heirloom for many generations yet to come as your family thrive into the future making their own mark on history as your ancestors did.

The McDermott Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the McDermotfamily history parchment:
This sept, named Mac Diarmada in Gaelic, had three main branches which were all descended from Tadhg O’ Connor, a King of Connaught before the twelfth century. The most important branch held much of County Roscommon and were based at Moylurg. The second group, called McDermot Roe, or ‘red’, owned the desolate land of Kilronan in County Galway. Madam McDermot, wife of the chief of this family, was known for her patronage of the Harper O’ Carolan in the eighteenth century-at a time when this ancient Gaelic custom of Aristocratic patronage had long since died out. The third branch of the sept was also in Connaught, but was anglicised, and fell into obscurity at an early date. The McDermots are one of the few septs to have an authentic chieftain surviving to this day: his title is the McDermot, Prince of Coolavin; other McDermots are now mostly found in Connaught, and also in Donegal and Tyrone. There were several outstanding members of this sept, the earliest being Brian McDermot, the sixteenth century owner of the celebrated manuscript ‘the Annals of Loch CE’. Hugh McDermot, born in 1834, and chieftain of the sept, was a prominent politician and barrister. Malcolro McDermot, an architect, was contracted by the Egyptian government to rebuild Alexandria after the bombardment of 1882. Peter Rowe McDermot was a poet who fought and described the American civil war. Today the name is often spelt as McDermott.

My aunt had a big birthday recently and I was looking for something unique for her that was a little more personal. She loves her family and it’s history, so when I found the Family Crest Parchment I immediately knew she would love it. Aidan arranged to have it printed and sent directly to her. My aunt rang me straight away in tears, she said it was the best gift she has ever received and would cherish it forever. Thank you Aidan, these are special pieces of art and history!
My Mother couldn’t have been more happy with her gift! Aidan was incredible through the whole process. His communication was excellent and I will definitely be using Gifts of Ireland again. Thank you so much Aidan
Absolutely loved my product! Thank you, Aidan :)
I bought the Donnelly family print as a birthday gift for my father in law and to say he was delighted is an understatement- he has a great love of history and to have an art piece of his own family history made him very proud. The delivery was so fast and the quality of the print and paper is top notch-If I could give 10 stars I would- Thank you!
Great quality, excellent customer service! Made a great gift!
