Over the years, in line with Irish folklore, many clans have adopted the Aran sweater as the ultimate clan symbol with over 500 Clan Aran patterns registered at the Aran Sweater Market on Inis Mor, Aran Islands, Ireland.
The Murphy Clan Aran has become a treasured item of heritage and a symbolic heirloom that is presented as a cherished gift amongst families of the Murphy name.
Symbols of Murphy Clan heritage:
  • Diamond Stitch -
The diamond stitch (visible on the side panels of the garment) represent the heraldry and regal lineage of the Murphy Clan which runs through the veins of all Murphys – from the ancient Gaelic septs of O’Murchadha and MacMurchadha right up to the present day. The diamonds also pay homage to the noble ancestry from which we came and will ensure that our legacy as one of the great clans of Ireland will never be forgotten.
  • Honeycomb Stitch -
The central panel of the Clan Aran is created using the honeycomb stitch which symbolises the strong and influential role which the Murphy name has played throughout the course of Irish history and the world at large. 
  • Moss Stitch -

The moss stitching (which fills each of the diamond patterns) is representative of how the Murphy Clan was regarded as both welcoming and hospitable in ancient times and reminds us to keep alive the ideals and values of our clan ancestors. 
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. 
In fact, each symbolic element of the Murphy Clan Aran sweater is embodied within the clan motto of “Brave & Hospitable” and we are proud to be associated with this authentic piece of Irish craftwork.
