Origin of the Name O'Hehir

The ancient history of the name O'Hehir was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name O'Hehir is derived from a Gaelic sept name which is also anglicized as McGarry, Garrihy, Hehir, Hare and Garry. This important family has it's origin with the Ui Fidhgheinte group and has been established from very early times in County Clare in the heart of Thomond. The great majority of these were descendants of the Oriel sept of O'Hir who were akin to the O'Hanlons and seated in the barony of Oriel, Armagh. From there they spread to Counties Antrim, Down, Louth and Clare. Today the name is regarded as Dalcassian with it's stronghold still in County Clare. The name in Irish is O'hAichir.
The O'Hehir 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 O'Hehir descendants.
