Castings of an Egan Coat of Arms
by John F. Egan and his son, Michael
The image below is a casting made from an actual impression taken
from the Egan memorial at the 13th Century Dominican Priory at Lorrha,
County Tipperary. The memorial was carved by Patrick Kerin and states
(in Latin), "Pray for the souls of Constantine Egan, gentleman, and his
son John, who erected this monument for themselves and their descendants.
The 4th day of October A.D. 1689." The castings have been painted
to resemble the original stone.
This coat of arms was in use by the Egan family from at least the early
1600s. There is a similar coat of arms to be seen on the memorial
of Briget Egan, who died in 1833, at St. Mary's Abbey, County Mayo.
If you would like to have one of these castings, send $40 for
each one ordered to:
