The Hagan Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Hagan family history parchment:
In Gaelic this name is O'Haodhagáin which means 'a descendant of Aodhagan' or 'little Hugh.’ This sept rose to power during medieval and Tudor times in various parts of Ulster. There are two places caned banyagan or 'homestead of the Hagans'- one in Derry, the other in Antrim-which indicate the group’s importance. One branch held vast estates in Monaghan and Armagh, while another was in County Tyrone where its chief, seated at Tullahogue, enjoyed the hereditary privilege of inaugurating the O’Neill chieftains as Kings of Ulster. Like most of the other ancient and noble Gaelic families of the north, they were dispossessed of their wealth and lands during the seventeenth century. Some emigrated to swell the ranks of the 'wild geese' who sold their bravery to continental armies; some turned to highway robbery, forming themselves into colourful and roguish band of rovingbrigands. Two Antrim O’Hagans were hanged for such activities in 1722 in Carrickfergus. There have been, however, more illustrious O'Hagans in Irish history. The twelfth-century Ivor O'Hagan was the tutor of St. Malachy Tirlough O’Hagan. The chieftain in 1590, is remembered with affection for his journey to bring back Hugh O'Neill to UIster after his famous escape from Dublin castle. The UIster-born O'Hagans were outstanding during the nineteenth century: John O’Hagan was a poet and judge, and Thomas O'Hagan made history as the first Catholic Lord Chancellor of Ireland for two centuries. Mary O'Hagan founded the Convent of Poor Clares.
