Origin of the Name Gallacher

The ancient history of the name Gallacher was found in the archives. Variants of Gallacher include Gallagher. Meaning 'foreign helper', this is a translation of the name from Irish which is Gallchobhair, and was possibly acquired in the three centuries when they were marshalls in the armies of the O'Donnells. They were descendants of the King of Ireland who reigned from 642-654. The Gallaghers claim to be the senior family of the Cineal Connaill, the Royal family of Connall Gulban, son of the great fourth century King, 'Niall of the Nine Hostages'. Their territory extended over a wide area of Raphoe and Tirhugh in County Donegal. The national records show them to have been intimately connected with ecclesiastical rather than with military sevices. The spelling Gallacher is most often found in Scotland .
The Gallacher 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 Gallacher descendants.
