Griffin.JPG.jpgWelcome to the Griffin Clan       We wanted to thank anyone for taking the time to visit this site and hopes this site can help you in finding out where the Griffin comes from.

 The Association Just what types of individuals join the Clan Griffin (Griffin) Association? Primarily those interested in either their genealogy, or those seeking out the significance of their surname. These people come from all walks of life, and have many varied interests, yet whether carpenter, doctor, police officer, or farmer, they all share one thing - an overwhelming desire to associate with their Irish descended kinsfolk. The association welcomes those who have a desire of belonging to one of greatest clans from Ireland. The family may be of several origins, including Irish, British or Welsh. "Griffiths" is a popular name in England, and has been found as Griffin on occasion in Ireland. Settlers of the name arrived in the wake of the Norman invasions from Wales, and no doubt thereafter. Of the native Irish of the name, they may hail originally from Co. Clare or Kerry. Ballygriffy, in the barony of Inchiquin, Co. Clare, marks the origins of the Thomand family, which spread into adjoining counties.
 
Griffin Clan
Many Griffin (Griffin) have never had contact with a branch of the association, and have little idea of our proud heritage, or how we share it amongst one another. Members of the Clan Griffin (Griffin) Association learn of this heritage, and celebrate it in their lives. Most association members only come together a handful of times each year, at a myriad of events, such as Irish Fairs, Scottish highland games, festivals, picnics and banquets. It cannot be stressed enough that the Clan Griffin (Griffin) Association is not simply a group of individuals "stuck in the past." One of the association's primary goals worldwide is to find a place for our culture in both the present and the future. Whether by embracing the music of our ancestral homeland, preserving the writings and lore of our forefathers, or celebrating our Irish heritage, we are actively making a difference for the future.
 Griffin Clan
They were seated at Ballygriffey castle, Dysart Parish, close to Ennis in Clare. Another family of the name was centered in Co. Kerry, at Ballygriffin, in the barony of Glanarought. There is also the place name of Ballygriffin in Coshma barony in Co. Limerick. The Limerick family may stem from either of these two families, we do not know. In the 17th century O'Griffen was a principal name of Cork and in Kerry. O'Griffin is also found in Cork, and Griffin in Limerick and Westmeath.
