Edeirnion.” The descendants of Irish families also adopted the war-cry of their septs as mottoes; thus O’Brien, “Lamh laidir an nachtar,” The strong hand uppermost, “Lamh dearg Erin,” The red hand of Ireland; O’Hagan, “Buadh no bas,” Victory or death; O’Donovan, “Giolla ar a-namhuid a-bu,” A man over is enemy for ever; O’Gorman, “Tosach catha agus deineadh air,” First in battle and fierce in slaugher; O’Doinn, “Mulach a-bu,” The tops of the mountains for ever, &c., &c. Mottoes not infrequently indicate the antiquity and derivation of the families by whom they are borne. In “Loywl as thow fynds,” we recognise the Saxon origin of the Tempests of Tong, and in “Touts jours prest,” the Norman ancenstry of the Talbos of Bashall: but this rule is far from being general: many families of Norman origin used English mottoes at a very early period, as Darell of Calehill, “Trow to you.”
