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 Murphy Irish surname. The Murphy family crest is illustrated at the center and surrounded by famous Celtic symbols of Ireland. This illustration is a wonderful dedication to meaning of the Murphy name.

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 Murphy Coat Of Arms Story

Read the meaning of the name Murphy in this intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Murphy family history parchment:

Murphy is easily the most frequently found surname in Ireland. The name is fairly widespread throughout the country but independent groups can be traced to particular areas. In Irish it is O’Murchadha or MacMurchadha.  One sept is thought to originate from Co. Tyrone where there is still a  considerable number of Murphys. They are now even more numerous in the neighboring county of Armagh where they are again first in the list of surnames. Old records speak of Flaherty O’Murphy, a chief in Co. Donegal, indicating that the Murphys have been well established in Ulster over a long period. Among this sept's prominent representatives are Arthur Murphy (1727-1805), the actor and dramatist, and Patrick Murphy (1834-1861) who was famous on account of height- eight feet, one inch. Historically, the most important Murphy sept was that of Leinster. These Murphys were associated with Co. Wexford where the name is still the most popular as it is in adjacent Co. Carlow. Many chiefs and soldiers of the Ulster and Leinster septs are recorded but there are others too, notably Domhnall Dall Ila Murchadha 'chief sage of Leinster' who died in 1127. The most concentrated population of Murphys is in Munster, particularly in counties Kerry and Cork. The Munster sept is believed to be an offshoot of the Kinsella branch of the Wexford group. Their distinguished members include John Murphy (1700-1770), otherwise known as Sean O’Murchadha na Rathineach, last chief of the Barney bards, Canon Jeremiah Murphy and the Most Reverend John Murphy, Bishop of Cork- both famous for their fine libraries. Marie Louise O’Murphy (1737-1814) beautiful daughter of an Irish soldier in Rouen, became an influential mistress of Louis XV and sat as a model for Boucher.

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!
