List Of Irish Counties' Coats Of Arms
The following is a list of Irish counties' coats of arms. In the majority of cases these are arms assigned to county councils created by the Local Government (Ireland) Act 1898 or later legislation, either by the Chief Herald of Ireland in what is now the Republic of Ireland or the College of Arms in Northern Ireland.
All but two county councils in the Republic has a coat of arms. In Northern Ireland county councils were abolished in 1973, but the traditional arms are still occasionally used. There are no official county flags. Flags with the GAA county colours serve as de facto county flags.

“The use of arms is ownership
Of the appropriate gun. It is ownership that brings
Victory that is not hinted at in Das Kapital.
I think there is never but one true war
So let us as you desire perfect our trade.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
“Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire:
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moones sphere;
And I serve the fairy queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green.
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours,
In those freckles live their savours.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“My list of things I never pictured myself saying when I pictured myself as a parent has grown over the years.”
