County Clare,(The Banner County), Ireland.

In Ennis most trade guilds had their own banners: bakers, butchers, brogue makers, coopers, nailers, dyers, masons, harness makers, cartwrights, stone cutters etc. all competed to produce the most handsome of banners.

At the inaugeration of the O’Connell monument in Ennis in 1865 thirteen different guilds carried banners, each representing the attributes of their particular trade.

That this represented a long tradition in the town is not in doubt since, on that occasion, the brogue makers’ guild carried a flag that had first been unfurled in 1726.

My own great grandfather, Brian Daly, was the custodian of the Ennis coopers’ banner and parts of the banner are still retained by the family.

Coopers County Clare

The coopers’ banner was not of the two pole variety that one usually sees today but was carried on a long single pole, topped by a small barrel; the banner itself hung down like a picture from a horizontal staff stretched across the top of the pole.

I can recall as a child seeing the banner which was then much injured by time; it was a rusted red colour and carried the inscription ‘Hearts of Oak’. This banner along with many others were carried along the streets to greet the various dignitaries that visited the town in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Politicians like Parnell and de Valera were greeted by hosts of banners. It is easy to see then in the political excitement of the times how the county acquired the name ‘the banner county’.

The reason the name stuck with Clare, I would suggest, was that custom of greeting politicians with banners, particularly at election time, survived longer in County Clare than in other counties.

The Parnellite and de Valera eras coincided with the rise of the GAA and the name soon transferred to the county’s hurling and football teams.
