Bishop Treanor's Coat of Arms

The Crosses:

Christ crucified = Redemption;
Also an adaptation of the Cross which appears in the Arms of Brussels, where Bishop Treanor worked = a European reference.

The Sprig of Rowan/Mountain Ash:
Associated with St Macartan, disciple of St Patrick, Patron of Clogher.
Fess Wavy Argent:

A reference to Silverstream, Co Monaghan, Bishop Treanor's home area.

Bishop Treanor has chosen for his Episcopal Motto a phrase from St Paul's Letter to the Ephesians (Eph. 5:8): Sicut Filii Lucis Ambulate (Walk as Children of Light).
