About the Irish Tartans Tartan

Wearing tartan is not limited to the Scots and the Lein-croich was the first version of the Irish kilt, however where Scottish tartans originate from the the Scottish Clans and family names, only some Irish family names correspond to particular tartans and most Irish tartans represent the districts and counties. We offer a range of Irish District tartans which represent the historic provinces such as Ulster and Connacht, as well as the regions such as Tara. There is also a range of County Tartans based around the geographical or tribal origins of names. So if you are of Celtic origin, Scottish or Irish, there is most certainly the opportunity to find your tartan.

Tartans such as the the Irish National tartan were created more recently as a symbol of Gaelic tradition and Irish nationalism.
