During the petition process, the heraldic design was done by Micheal Comain, and the art by Philip Mackey, both of the Office of the Chief Herald of Ireland, Colette O' Flaherty.

The field of the shield is parted per fess embattled to reflect Lieutenant Colonel Casey's military career. The single charge is a very exact reference to his name. Casey/O'Casey/Cathasaigh which derives from cathasach  meaning  "watchful".

Badge 1 Lawrence King Casey, Jr.
Badge 2 Lawrence King Casey, Jr.
Badge 3 Lawrence King Casey, Jr.

The crane, in  legend, stands holding a rock in one foot so that should he sleep the rock will fall and wake him. He is, then, the symbol of watchfulness and is known heraldically as a crane in his vigilance.

The armiger's eligibility to bear Irish arms is based on his dual Irish citizenship and lineal descent from his father Lawrence King Casey of Portland in the State of Maine (USA), the grandson of William Henry Casey of Cahirciveen in the county of Kerry, and his great-grandfather Daniel Casey (1833-1936) of Cahirciveen in the county of Kerry.

The crest is a distillatory - in everyday language, a still and alludes to the chemical engineering familiar in Ireland.

Above the shield is the motto Tairgeann Dua Sean Agus Fad Saoil (Hard work produces prosperity/blessing and a long life), and beneath the shield Tairgeann dua rath (Hard work produces good fortune). These mottoes are based on a statement by great grandfather Daniel Casey of Cahirciveen, who became at the time Irelands oldest farmer, and when asked to what he contributed his longevity he replied "hard work in the open air"Ě.

The armiger possesses three badges, the first: Enfiling a sprig of laurel Proper an ancient crown Or represents the families of Lawrence/Laurence and King.

The surname Lawrence or Laurence derives from laurel, so the armiger chose sprig of laurel enfiled by (passing through) an ancient crown representing the name of King. A reminder of the armigerís paternal great grandmother Anastasia Lawrence of county Kilkenny, and great grandfather Patrick King of county Clare.
