Today, a new spirit in the international O Driscoll family owes much to the Annual O Driscoll
Clan Gathering which takes place in June each year at Baltimore and the islands. O Driscolls from many
lands attend the three day gathering where old friends and long-lost family relations meet again.
The Clan Gathering has so often been the springboard for many to go
in search of their roots. The annual programme of events can include a reception
where people first get to know others in the international O Driscoll family, a
lecture on some aspect of O Driscoll heritage, a book launch, an exhibition, story-telling
and singing sessions and visits to historic sites.
