O'Dell (Waterford)

Edward O'Dell of Carriglea, Dungarvan, was the owner of over 3000 acres in county Waterford in the 1870s. At the time of Griffith's Valuation, he was among the principal lessors in the parishes of Ardmore and Ringagonagh, barony of Decies-within-Drum and Whitechurch, barony of Decies-without-Drum. Sadleir, referring to 1775, notes that John "Odle of Mount Odle" was married to a Miss Musgrave, daughter of Christopher Musgrave.
