Origin of the Name McCool

The McCool family history was found in the archives. Variants of McCool include Coyle, McIihoyle, McCoole and McCole. The homeland of this Irish sept was in the Barony of Kilmacrenan, particularly in the parish of Meeragh. The name is most numerous today in Donegal but is rarely found in Ulster. In the 1659 census we find the name Coyle is a principal Irish name in Roscommon and MacIichole for the Barony of Kilmacrenan in County Donegal. A famous bearer of the name was Rev. Anthony Coyle, who was Bishop of Raphoe from 1782 to 1801, and who was noted for his Gaelic Irish poetry and religious works. The forms of the name, McCole and McCool, are both mostly found in Donegal.
The McCool 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 McCool descendants.
