Party per chevron Gules and Vert, overall a chevron ermine between, in the dexter of the chief a dexter hand apaumée couped at the wrist, in the sinister of the chief a key palewise, ward to dexter chief, and in base a boar passant Argent. Motto: «To Thine Own Self Be True» Sable, with initial letters Gules, over a scroll Argent.

Design rationale

This design combines Byrne, O'Byrne, Ó Broin arms: «Gules, a chevron between three dexter hands apaumée couped at the wrist Argent», with O'Hanlon, Ó hAnluain arms: «Vert, on a mount in base proper, a boar passant Ermine».

These features embody the heraldic adaptation by Gaelic chieftains, integrating ancient tribal symbolism deeply rooted in Celtic mythology and rich local traditions from Wicklow and Armagh.

This design, while combining elements from each and respects this symbolism:

  • The layout of the traditional Byrne arms was chosen as the basis for the new arms to reflect the armiger's surname, however, for difference only one of the three dexter hands is employed but in the prime dexter position on the shield and retaining its tinctures. The sinister position has a key to emphasise and reflect the motto «To Thine Own Self Be True» as the essential or key message for one's life, integrity and honesty.
  • The base of the shield has the boar taken from the O'Hanlon arms, an ancient symbol of bravery, courage, and tenacity.
  • The chevron ermine was chosen to incorporate an element used in various versions of the Byrne and O'Hanlon traditional arms and to reflect the nobility of these two ancient clans/septs who fought long and hard to maintain their independence right up to the XVII century.

Design rationale

Kathleen Kane's three recent matrilineal ancestors were all named after the Irish Saint Brigid of the 5th and 6th centuries. With the time, this saint added to her own story some of the characteristics of her namesake, the earlier Celtic goddess of water, poetry, and the alchemical force of fire. She is one of the patron saints of Ireland and her Feast Day is February 1st.

These three women were formidable characters: resilient, resourceful, and independent. Each inspired their daughters to follow in their footsteps, reflecting the attributes associated with Saint Brigid, an icon of strength, piety, resourcefulness, and independence. They are symbolized by the three crosses of Saint Brigid.

Saint Brigid's Crosses, woven from straw or rushes and blessed, are traditionally hung in the rafters or beams of the house to ensure the saint's protection throughout the year for all household members. This symbolism connects the matrilineal ancestors with the home and the protection of the family, which, according to the motto, is everything.

The four leaves of the Silver Leaved Whitebeam represent Kathleen's four children. The interlaced stems symbolize the union of the family and their home in Dún Laoghaire, outside of which this tree grows.

Coat of arms and heraldic creation, December 2017 - December 2023

Antonio Salmerón Cabañas, «Coat of arms and heraldic creation between December 2017 and December 2023», paintings registered in the Intellectual Property Registry of Madrid, 72 pages with 237 color illustrations of coats of arms, insignias, banners, step-by-step schemes for the creation of coats of arms, decorations and collars of chivalric orders, and design of certificates.

In this extensive six-year compilation, I have meticulously selected works that represent my heraldic artistry. This period allowed me to delve deeper into the intricacies of heraldic design, culminating in a collection that not only showcases my growth as an artist but also the evolution and diversity of heraldic traditions.
