The Conroy Coat of Arms
from Chris Conroy
My mum has the above post card of a different Conroy coat of arms the motto means the following: maireann a scriobtar = that which is written survives. The phonetic way to say this irish gaelic is mor-on a shreev-tor.
The coat of arms on the Conroy site with the motto lamb laidir an uachtar = (to have) the strong upper hand. The phonetic way to say this in irish gaelic is lawv loijir in ook-tor.
