Origin of the Name Carrigan



The origin of the name Carrigan was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Carrigan include Corrigan, O'Corrigan, Corridon, Corrodan and Corridan. This name is O'Corragain in Irish . The sept belongs primarily to Fermanagh being of the same stock as the Maguires. Descendants of the name are still found in that part of Ulster, but the name today is very scattered, being found in most Counties. In the 1659 census Corrigan and O'Corrigan are among the more numerous Irish names in Offaly, Longford and Fermanagh. The place called Ballycorrigan is near Nenagh in County Tipperary, indicating that a leading family of Corrigan was seated there not later than the middle of the seventeenth century.
The Carrigan coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Carrigan descendants.
