The McGuinness Coat Of Arms Story

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

This is one of the largest, most ancient, and most illustrious septs in Ireland. It originated in the third century when King Oilioll Olum divided Munster between his sons, Cormac Cas and Eoghan. The latter took Desmond, which was the southern portion, and his followers became known as the Eoghanacht. The Gaelic Mac Carthaigh derives from Carthach, a lord of the Eoghanacht, who was burnt to death in a house in 1045. It is a curious fact that certain Christian names recur with this surname throughout the annals of military, political and cultural history. One is Justin, the anglicised version of Saorbreathach, Corthach’s father, and the others are fineen, Florence, Cormac or Charles. Three main branches of the sept were formed. McCarthy Mor flourished in the wooded Glens and Fjords of Berry, and founded there the beautiful Muckross Abbey. McCarthy Reagh belonged to West Cork, and Cormac McCarthy was responsible for building the unique Romanesque Chapel at Cashel in 1127. The famous Blarney Castle was the residence of the MacKerry McCarthys- the blarney stone had, most likely, been an inaugural platform for their chieftains. In later times the sept maintained its importance, but their estates had diminished by the eighteenth century. The learned fineen, chief of the McCartht Reagh, served in Queen Elizabeth’s army and was then confined to the Tower of London, where he wrote a history of ancient Ireland. Justin, count McCarthy was ennobled by Louis XVI, for his fine and rich book collection. His namesake, who died in 1912, was a historian, novelist and politician. Another namesake, the Earl of Mount Cashell, commanded one of James II’s regiments, and the Irish brigade. Over the centuries the name undergone change; prominent among the variations are Carty, McCarty & MaCarthy.
