As such it is not really an Irish name although it was in relatively common usage in times past, particularly in the west of Ireland. The present Prime Minister of Ireland is Batholomew Ahern, although he is more commonly known as “”Bertie.””

Don’t know why you keep confusing the Scottish name McPharlans with the Irish name Bartley The McPharlans dropped the Mac from their name when it was no longer popular, and developed a sub- crest from the original Irish Bartley crest. Two entirely different people. To make clearer to you , they stole our name and Family Crest.
