Mary DRISCOLL was born in 1856 in Lisheen, Aughadown, near Roaringwater Bay, the daughter of John O'Driscoll and Julia Harrington O'Driscoll.

Mary DRISCOLL went to America to find work with her sister Ellen, but returned after her sister Ellen died to marry Randal BURKE in about 1888.

Mary is buried with her DRISCOLL forefathers as is the custom in that part of Ireland.
