County Laois Coat of Arms
The chevronels or inverted V's, rising towards the top of the shield represent the Slieve Bloom Mountains and the Rock of Dunamaise and are charged with seven ermine spots representing the seven leading families or 'tribes' of Laois. The motto - L bÁirt leis an bpobal - means Together with the People.
The IBD Home Page and 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.
