|Tartan is not just a beautiful designer fabric,
it also carries history and heritage. The Scottish have historically had
the monopoly on linking surnames to Clan or District Tartans - the Irish
had some Tartans either connected directly to a few family names, or to
districts like Connacht.
Now, those of Irish descent can wear a tartan that links
them with their heritage.
This resource links surnames to suggested tartans the
holder may wear - in many cases there are several alternatives,
ranging from a family tartan or a district tartan to the newly
created County Tartans - all are equally appropriate.
Our site enables those of Irish descent who wish to
display their heritage the opportunity to identify their
eligible tartans and browse garments and fabric available.
