My entire family of 20 will be at the 2007 reunion. We are looking for 2 or 3 self-catering houses in Baltimore. Has anyone any suggestions of specific places or people to contact?

And, we are seeking acitivities for 5 young children, ages 3-9. They are not so interested in castles or drinking beer. (grin) Have any of you traveled in Ireland with small children? Have you suggestions of places to visit that these kids might find entertaining? They can be happy swimming all day.

I'm eager to see all of you again. I was at the reunion in 2005 so met some of you.

Myself my son and my wife visited Ireland for the first time this summer. The plan was to tour the west coast for a week and spend the second between Cork & Waterford. Our last two nights on tour were booked in Skibbereen and we went to Clear believe it or not ,not knowing the family connection. What a shock we had. It was almost like Baltimore pulled us to it ,spooky. Anyway we don't know when but i would love to attend a gathering.

Hi Dave. Nora sent me your O'Driscoll link after Eugene told her your clan leader honor. Your site is most informative; our USA Driscoll family roots
are in Baltimore, Maryland; Dennis O'Driscol / Driskell is our earliest known ancestor. There is a historical Driscoll House, which may be in Baltimore, maryland. Our lineage is Ireland and German, where William Penn went to promote settlers into his new land--USA. Interesting now that in my generation there is a Dennis and a Dave Driscoll.

Judy Driscoll ( jtdris@comcast.net / no homepage) wrote:

You've done a wonderful job on your website. My father-in-law's father was William Henry Driscoll who reportedly was the son of Henry Driscoll (b. @1850 Ireland) and Catherine Homes/Holmes born in Ireland. William H. was sent to St. Mary's Orphanage in Middlesex, London about 1880 along with his brother Thomas, so I am assuming their father died (possibly in England)shortly before that. Their mother at that time was in a workhouse in Middlesex. I have found them on the 1881 census, but have not been able to go farther back as Henry doesn't appear on any of the records I have been able to find in Ireland. William and Thomas were sent to Quebec, Canada as "home boys" in 1886. Eventually they ran away and came to Michigan early in the 1890's. Neither of them knew their actual birthdates so adopted March 17th and tried to come close to the exact year...which would have been approximately 1871-1873. I noticed you have a William Henry Driscoll on your tree and wondered if you had any further information on him? I'm thinking that possibly Henry Driscoll was actually a William Henry, considering his son's name. If anyone has any suggestions where I might find further information please feel free to contact me. Thank you again for your wonderful site. Judy

Hello O'Driscolls--
This is a great site-- thank you for all the work and information on O'Driscolls. I've no idea when my family came over to the States, but they settled around Pennsylvania and Michigan. I've read about the pirate connections, and there's even a horsethief or two back a few generations in our own branch.

Oh could you send a photo please to verify the photo I took of you and John O Driscoll of Australia. I can't send you the photo as I dont have a scanner yet- just a beginner with all of this technology.
A little write up oon the progress of your O Driscoll work and a sort of career profile of yourself and ancestors would be great.

My grandfather came to join the rest of his family on Staten Island NY at the age of seven, from Skibbereen, about 1863. When I was to Skibbereen and the surrounding parishes I could not find his baptismal record but I did not check in Baltimore.

This summer I purchased an 1850 ruined priests house in Rineen Co. Cork with the intention of restoring it. It was called Rineen House in the townland of Carrigtishane, Rineen - near to Casletownshend and was built by the Swanton family who also built and operated the mills at Rineen. It was the local priests house in the 1920 timeframe. I just found out today that there is possibly a photograph or drawing of the house in the Sketches of Carbery book. I was wondering if you would have a copy of this book and could possibly send me a copy of any references to Rineen House that it might contain.

Hi Dave
Thanks for setting up this web site & giving me another lead to follow up! I'm trying to track down my Grandad's family for him. We live in Bristol (UK) and apparently my Grandad's family were originally O'Driscolls!
He was in the Navy & approached by a Sgt Major of the Somerset Light Infantry called Driscoll who asked him if he was called Ron Winter (which he is) & said that they were related. All that the Sgt Major told my grandad was that 2 sisters married 2 brothers and lived in a large house called Winter's House in Alveston / Chipping Sodbury nr Bristol (Hence my Grandad's name of Winter). The Sgt Major said that his family lived in Redcliffe, Bristol. I am hoping that you may of heard something about these O'Driscolls as my Grandad is keen to find out about his origins. My Grandad thinks the Sgt Major spoke to him in either New York or Bristol but isn't 100% sure as he was "propping up a bar" at the time!! I would be really grateful if you could provide any information for me to work on, but if not keep up the good work with your website!!
