Dún na Séad Castle in the town centre,
now an impressive ruin standing
on a rock overlooking the harbour.


Lough Hyne with the remains of Cloghane Castle,
the final home of Sir Fenen O’Driscoll,
is on an island to the right of centre.

Ah, lovely, luscious  Cork, the  land of    my Irish Ancestors.

Although I have never been there, West Cork,  the “rebel county
is the place that my Irish ancestors the O’ Driscolls and the Nugents
came to America from many years ago.

Cork is a place of many wonders including the Blarney Castle and the Blarney Stone.
and of the course, the countless Castles, one even named after my O’Driscoll ancestors.

The O’Driscoll Clans of Ireland

 My Irish ancestors were descended from the O’Driscolls

of West Cork, Ireland and this page is intended to honor them.

The O’Driscoll Clans were first in South Kerry,

then later West Cork, Corca Laoighde,

in the County of Cork, Southern Ireland.
