Ryan / Mulryan

Sus armas: en campo de gules, tres cabezas de grifo, de plata. Cimera: un grifo con sus alas desplegadas, de gules, teniendo en la garra izquierda una daga.

RYAN es uno de los apellidos más difundidos en Irlanda, aunque puede decirse que la gran mayoría de los que así se apellidan son, en realidad, O'Mulryan, que es la forma antigua del apellido, actualmente obsoleta. O'Hart dice que son de la línea de Heremon, descendientes de Cormac, hijo de Nathach, nº 95 en el pedigree de los MacMorrough. En las listas de entradas de pasajeros al puerto de Buenos Aires hasta 1880 figuran siete de apellido RYAN y uno más cuyo nombre patronímico es O'RYAN.

The Ryans are directly descended from Drona, who was fourth in descent from Cathair Mor, the founder of the Drona trible. The O'Riains, or anglicized Ryans, were chiefs of the tribe of Ui Drona and settled in Carlow and Kilkenney where they gave their name to the area. In the 11 th century, the Chief of Ui Drona took the surnamme of O'Ryan, and the clan continued to possess the original stronghold of the family Ui Idrone which is composed of much of the present day County Carlow and westward into Kilkenny in the vicinity of Graiguenamanagh.

In the late 12th century, Dermot O'Ryan of Idrone granted land for the building of an abbey at Graiguenamanagh, called the Cistercian Duiske Abbey. It is one of the oldest buildings associated with the Ryan family and is still intact and beautifully restored. Today it is used as the parish church. The historian, Georffrey Keating, describes the Ryans as follows: "A Sept most free and hospitable." For their constant opposition to the English colonists, their possessions were confiscated in the Cromwellian and Williamites periods.

The name Ryan in Ireland is among the ten most frequently found in the entire country. Descendants usually derive from the O'Maoilriain Sept that was based in Limerick or from the O'Riain Sept that was based in Leinster.
