  • Notes: Scotch Corner (a company in Gateshead, England) have produced various Irish surname tartans over the years but have never advised or consulted the Scottish Tartans Authority or offered any historical evidence for their designs. Since there is no known evidence of any Irish clan/family tartans having ever existed, these should not be regarded as genuine clan/family tartans but merely fashion designs given an Irish surname. However . . . . it may be considered that this is how many of Scotland's clan tartans originally came into being so perhaps in a hundred years or so, today's inventions will be regarded as tomorrow's genuine Irish clan/family tartans. Threadcount from Alistair Buchan of Lochcarron Feb 2003. Lochcarron swatch.
