The Kearney Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Kearney parchment:
There are Kearneys today in all the four provinces of Ireland. There are also a number of alternative forms indicating different origins. The Carney form is particularly found in Connaught and most concentrated in county Mayo. In Irish this is O’Cearnaigh, probably derived from ‘Cearnach’ meaning victorious. This branch are descended from the people of the Ul Flachrach whose territory lay around Moynulla and Balla in County Mayo. Another group, also known as O’Cearnaigh migrated in early times to Cashel in County Tipperary. The group of Kearneys who have been most significant historically are known in Irish as O’ Catharnaigh. They were chiefs of teffla in County Meath and, although with the passage of time their influence diminished, they retained a lot of land in Kilcoursey, County Offaly. The title of Baron Kilcoursey was granted to them. The Kearnerys of Meath are usually known as fox, which stems from Sionnach-fox-being one of the names applied to their eleven century ancestors. Other variations are Keherney, O’Caherney and McCarney in County Cavan. Kearneys have been well represented in the church. Among these were the Reverend Barnadas Kearney, S.J (1567-1640). David Kearney, Archbishop of Cashel from 1603 to 1625 and the Reverend John Kearney, author of a Catechism in Irish. The eighteenth century saw many of the most active among the Irish Gentry seeking service in the counts of Europe, particularly in France. The Abde Charles Kearney (c.1745-1820) was a prominent opponent of the French revolution. John Kearney of fethard was secretary to James II and his family were prominent members of court and legal circles.
