I live in Pittsburgh, PA; my family having originated in CO.Mayo, Ireland. Recently I had a tartan designed for my family; though without restriction on use. This means that others of the same name may use it; whether directly related or not. This is in process of registration with the Tartan Register. The sett can be seen at http://www.heraldicgraphics.demon.co.uk/murtaugh.htmhttp://www.heraldicgraphics.demon.co.uk/murtaugh.htm
Now any and all Murtaughs deriving from Co.Mayo, or living in Co. Mayo: Take a little time and talk with other members of your family. I would appreciate if some one from each family would contact me. ClanMurtaugh@irishnation.com Let me know if your family would be for or against considering this tartan also as our Sept Tartan. Also let me know a little about your family, its history, where you are currently, etc.
I will be getting together for a decent sized local family reunion in a few weeks and will be bringing this up with the family at that time.
Appreciate your efforts here, cousins, brothers and sisters,
