County Carlow Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for County Carlow

These arms have strong associations with the Butler family. Like the arms of Kilkenny and Tipperary, the field is ermine and for the same reasons. The two English lions signify that the Butlers held their land from the English crown. The rampant lion comes from the arms of another Butler family from Garrybunden in the County.

Each IBD County Page has or will have (where possible) the relevant Coat of Arms. This is made possible thanks to a fantastic heraldry website called the International Civic Heraldry Website. Sometimes a description is not given due to lack of information, so if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. You may visit this superb site by using the link below.
