In keeping with the tradition of Irish clans adopting the Aran sweater as a symbol of their heritage, the Walsh Clan Aran Sweater is registered along with 500 Clan Aran patterns at the Aran Sweater Market (an Irish company, producing authentic hand knit Aran knitwear) on Inis Mor, Aran Islands, Ireland.

Our clan holds one of the most intricate and highly symbolic patterns of clan heritage & the Walsh Clan Aran Sweater is viewed as a treasured and revered gift among Walsh families.
Symbols of Walsh Clan heritage:
  • Diamond Stitch -
The diamond stitch (visible on the side panels) is representative of the regal Norman lineage from which we Walsh’s originate. Given the historic Norman ancestry of the Walsh name, the diamond stitch is a nod to the heraldry and noble figures of the Walsh Clan who arrived in Ireland during the Norman invasion of the 12th Century.
  • Cable Stitch -
The centre stitch of cable signifies the manner in which, following the Norman conquest of Ireland, the Walsh Clan became so positively entwined in the Irish way of life and in the culture – this is also symbolic of the strong and rich influence which the Walsh name has gone on to play in the history of Ireland down through the centuries.
  • Honeycomb Stitch -
The honeycomb stitch (which is inter-woven with the cable stitch on central panels) symbolises the reputation that the Walsh name has earned itself throughout Irish history as being resolute and strong and not found wanting when the need for bravery was required. It is also representative of the virtues and qualities of the Walsh Clan’s tradition of remaining resiliently loyal to family and to the clan, ideals that we can proudly carry with us today.
The Clan Aran itself is hand knitted in the traditional báinín (pronounced ‘baw neen’) colour and this maintains the natural white of the wool. Murphy Clan Aran Sweater is made of 100% pure new wool, is water repellent and fully breathable. It has been hand crafted in the traditional Irish style, and, with care, will last a lifetime. 
It is significant that the patterns of the Walsh Clan Aran sweater are exemplified within the clan motto of “Pierced but not dead” and we are proud to be connected with this genuine Irish craftwork.
