The Tribal Coat of Arms Theory is based upon the fact that prior to the invasion of Ireland by the English, Irish tribe chieftains such as the Finnertys of  the Sil Murry were elected and the leadership did not necessarily pass to the son,  When the English [Anglo-Normans] came there were four distinct  Finnerty heads of families in the tribe, all loosley related; two of them being the Finnertys of clan Conway and the Finnertys of clan Murrough of the Champions,  There was no clan Finnerty until the English forced the  adoption of family names and two of the four adopted the given name of the head of family.
