O'Connell 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 O'Connell Irish surname. The O'Connell 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.

The O'Connell Coat Of Arms Story

Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the O'Connell family history parchment:

This ancient sept dominated the brooding and mysterious loughs and mountains of Kerry, claiming descent from Ertmonian Dengus Tuirmeach, who is thought to have been High King of Ireland in 280 B.C. The early form of the name was O’Conghall, and the sept was originally in east Kerry, their chieftain being Lord of Magunihy in the beautiful Killarney region. In the 11th century the O’Donoghues drive there westwards to the Atlantic coast whereby the 15h century, they had become hereditary governors of Ballycarbery Castle. During the upheavals of the 17th century, the most prominent family of the sept was moved to County Clare, where its descendants still remain today leading O’Connell family are once again located in the barony of Magunihy. This sept has produced truly outstanding Irishmen. An exile, Daniel Count O’Connell, who died in 1833, was the ‘last colonel of the Irish decade’ in France at a time when his kinsman, Daron Moritz O’Connell, also serving on the continent, was chamberlain to three different emperors. Friar John O’Connell composed the historical poem ‘Tuiereadh na Heireann’ in 1700, and Peter, another academic of the family, born seventy-five years later, was described as ‘the best Irish scholar in the Ireland of a century ago.’ Maurice O’Connell was a celebrated squire, smuggler and autocrat known as ‘hunting  cap’ but it was his nephew who was to give the name world-wode fame. This impressive barrister, Daniel O’Connell, early in the 19th century, earned the title ‘The Liberator’ by his representation of the Irish people in the house of Commons. He was a sincere and gifted statesman whose magnificent oratory made him an eminent leader.

Dissatisfied

Firstly communication has been horrendous. Totally unprofessional. Secondly I ordered my shield like 5 months in advance for a 40th birthday and it comes with the totally wrong logo for one of the families. It isn’t the family shield. With only about 5 weeks left and with no response to my email looks like the birthday surprise has been ruined. I’m out of luck getting it elsewhere now due to the time restrictions. There was no communication asking if the logos were the correct ones for the families. No reply to my email to fix the mistake. Totally upset and disappointed in the service especially on the communication front.

A beautiful plaque commemorating the joining of our two families

Aidan and his team did a beautiful job creating a dual coat of arms wall plaque and included our anniversary. The workmanship is outstanding and customer service is excellent. A great organization to work with. Thank you.

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!
