County Westmeath Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for County Westmeath.

The arms were granted on 29 March 1969. The motto 'Triath os Triathaibh', i.e., 'noble above nobility', is that of the High King of Ireland Tuathal Teachtmhar (obit 106 AD) who had a palace at Uisneach, reputed to be the geographic centre of the island of Ireland, about 15 kms west of the County seat of Mullingar. Stone structures are still visible.

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.
