If your name is O'Driscoll, Driscoll, Driscol, Driskel, or any other variation, there is little doubt that you are descendant from the original O'Driscoll's or ÓhEidirsceoil, and your ancestors originated in south west Cork. Your ancestors were established in Baltimore on the mainland, and Cape Clear, and Sherkin Islands. They were once one of the most powerful Clans in Ireland, and can be traced back more than a thousand years.
