Driscoll, O' hEidrisceoil

 

The surname O’ Driscoll comes from the Irish O hEidirisceoil, from eidirisceoil meaning ‘go between’ or ‘bearer of news’ Few Irish names have been so continuously associated with their territory of origin as the Driscolls or O’ Driscolls. They belong to County Cork. Originally they were found in West Kerry but pressure from the O’ Sullivan Clan pushed them Eastwards and they settled around Baltimore, and Skibbereen in South West Cork.
