The McCann Coat Of Arms Story

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

During the tenth century Irish surnames became fixed, when most septs or clans took their permanent name from the Chief of their Tribe, thus the origin of this surname is Mac Anna, which means ‘son of Annadh’. This eventually became McCanna, and is also anglicised in certain Western parts of Ireland to Canny. The McCanns originally held the fertile plain of Clanbrassil on the South Shore of Lough Neagh; and despite all the upheavals of Irish history, it is here that the majority of those bearing this surname are still found. Of the early chieftains, Amhlaibh McCanna, who died in 1155 was a ‘pillar of Chivalry and Vigour’ according to later chronicles. Perhaps the last lord of Clanbrassil was Donnell McCanoa, who lived during the rebellious closing years of the sixteenth century. The two most eminent McCanns have been gifted with words. Michael Joseph McCann, who was born in 1824, wrote the poem ‘O’ Donnell Adu’. Patrick McCanna of Armagh must have visited Blarney before he left for France for, during the French revolution, he found himself defending the Irish college from a frenzied mob by talking them round from hostility to friendship- not an easy task. He ended an eventful career as a prominent merchant in Boulogne.
