O'Driscoll (West Carbery)

The O'Driscolls were an ancient Gaelic family who had, up to the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, held large amounts of land in the barony of West Carbery. Following the confiscations of the mid-1600s they were confinded to small estates. Margaret O'Driscoll was one of the principal lessors in the parish of Caheragh at the time of Griffith's Valuation. In the 1870s, her representatives owned over 650 acres in county Cork.
