Origin of the Name Hartigan

The origin of the name Hartigan was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The Irish names Hartigan, Hartagan and O'Hartigans are derived from a Dalcassian sept that was located in east County Clare and in County Limerick where they are still represented in modern times. This name is O'hArtagain in Irish , derived from the well-known first name Art.
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
A well know bearer of the name was Cineth O'Hartagan, the Gaelic poet who died in the year 975. Dunlaing O'Hartigan fought alongside the famous Brian Boru at the battle of Clontarf in the year 1014. Father Matthew O'Hartigan of Limerick was an emissary of the Catholic Confederation to France in 1643. He is also noteworthy for his efforts on behalf of the Irish exiles in the West Indies. In modern times these names are still mostly found in the western Counties.
The Hartigan 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 Hartigan descendants.
