The Redmond Family Crest

A flaming beacon, represents the oldest lighthouse in Ireland, off the peninsula of the Hook, the area most closely linked with the family; in the Annals they are described as Clanna Reamainn Tighe Solais,

"the Redmond family of the lighthouse".

The arms themselves commemorate Alexander Redmond's defence of Redmond's Hall against Cromwell's army, in which woolsacks were used to protect the defenders.

The family motto translates

"To live piously and to love God and our country".
