O'Toole 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''Toole Irish surname. The O'Toole 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.

The O'Toole Coat Of Arms Story

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

Throughout their history, the O’Tooles- O Tuathall in Irish- are noted for their involvement in military struggles of one kind or another. From the Anglo-Norman invasion at the end of the 12th century until the end of the 17th century they never ceased to resist conquest. They were assisted in this by the nature of their territory which, although not far from Dublin, was situated in the wooded and mountainous Co. Wicklow. It was to Felim O’Toole at Glendalough that Hugh O’Neill, the great opponent of the Tudor conquest, came for shelter following his escape from Dublin Castle in 1590. O’Toole lands covered the same area as the diocese of Glendalough and their influence was such that, until the 13th century when it was united with Dublin, their chiefs wielded the power to nominate the Abbots and Bishops of Glendalough. One Abbot was Laurence O’Toole who, in 1171, despite being archbishop of Dublin took up arms to fight the invaders. He is believed to have founded St. Saviour’s monastery near Derrybawn in 1162. He was later canonized; the remains of the monastery can still be seen.  A great many other O’Tooles followed his pattern and in the 18th century took up military service abroad in France and other European countries. Captian Luke O’Toole was personally decorated by Pope Clement III for his part in the dairing exploit to rescue Maria Clementina Sodleski of Poland, subsequently wife of James III- the ‘old pretender.’ Another Laurence O’Toole (b. 1722) of Fairfield, Co. Wexford, was an officer in the Irish brigade in France and had eight sons. All of whom served in the French army, the eldest Colonel John O’Toole was made a count, the ancestor of the present Count O’Toole of Limoges.

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!
