County Clare Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for County Clare

During 1986, the Council introduced this Coat of Arms signifying six symbols relevant to the County . The shield is specifically designed to convey the effect of both the flat and craggy landscape of the County. The motto 'Dilis d'ar noidhreacht' (True to Our heritage) was the suggestion of Rebecca Maher, Ennis, after the Council invited applications from the various schools for appropriate slogans.

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.
