The Mahoney Coat Of Arms Story

Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Mahoney parchment:

Although Mahony is one of the most frequently found names in Ireland it is still particularly associated with west Munster and that area of County Cork traditionally occupied by the O’ Mahony sept. They were a very influential group whose chieftains were often described as princes and their territory is represented today by the Barony of Kmelmeahy. A fortified castle known as Rosbrian lay off the coast of South West Cork. Their name is derived from the ancestor Mathghamhan, the Irish word for a bear. His origins were very distinguished since his mother was the daughter of the famous Brian Boru. Mathghamhan himself died at the battle of Clontarf in 1014, along with Brian himself and many of the Desmond fighting men. ‘Brian’s battle’, as the sagas describe it, was one of the bloodiest of the age but it struck a powerful blow against the horse invaders, preventing their conquest of Ireland. In later year another famous soldier was count Daniel O’ Mahony (d. 1714). Serving France in the Irish brigade with many of his fellow countrymen, he became a General and a hero of the Battle of Cremona. In Another sphere Sylvester Mahony (1804- 1866), under the pseudonym of father Prout, wrote ‘the bells of Shandon’ and other poems associated with Cork. The nineteenth century was characterized by massive emigration as thousands of Irish men and women left the poverty and unemployment of Ireland to look for a better life elsewhere. Two such hopeful travelers are listed as passengers on the ‘fortitude’, bound for New York from Cork in February 1804. They were Margaret Mahony, aged thirty, and her daughter Anne, nine, from Dunmanway in County Cork. Today, due to mis-spelling in the past the name is frequently seen as Mahoney or Mahony.
