The O'Loughlin Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the O'Loughlin family history parchment:
The sept or clan of O’Loughlin originated in County Clare which it has been associated ever since the towns of Dallyvaughn and Kilfenora still retain the densest population of O’Loughlins. They lie in the heart of the Burren , that wild upland area of north Clare notable for its limestone pavements and rare alpine flora. In 1585 the chief of the name was seated at Craggans. The modern barony of Burren eventually constituted O’Loughlin territory but in earlier times as one of the more powerful septs along the shores of the Galway bay and the Atlantic ocean, their chief was known as Lord of Corcomroe. This eventually became known locally as the ‘king of the Burren’ following the tradition styling the head of the sept as O’Loughlin Burren. Another reason was that the clan name of both O’Loughlin and O’Connors was Corca Moduruaidh and when the division came about the latter kept Corcomroe and the O’Loughlins took Burren. They are quite distinct from the Mcloughlins although when the ‘O’ and ‘Mac’ prefixes were dropped in the eighteent and nineteenth centuries no doubt some confusion was subsequently caused. The royal family of Cineal Eoghan were first known as O’Loughlin but by 1200 or so they had become McLoughlin. Conghalach O’Loughlin is recorded as Bishop of Corcomroe, subsequently the see of Kilfedora from 1281 until 1300. Much later, in the nineteenth century, Clare produced a famous family of O’Loughlins. Sir Michael O’Loughlin (1789-1842) was master of the rolls, and his sons sir Colman (1819-1877) and Sir Bryan (1828-1905) became respectively, member of parliament for Clare and Prime Minister of Victoria, Australia.
