Elizabeth O'Driscoll I believe was born at Lower Raffeen House circa 1861.  Her parents were Dan and or John O'Driscoll and her mother Margaret.  She married a George Barry circa 1886.  I cannot find a birth or marriage date for Elizabeth.  I know that she died  9/2/1913. at Raffeen.  Her mother Margaret O'Driscoll died at Raffeen in 1912.  I saw an advertisement in an Irish paper that Margaret O'Driscoll/Driscoll was renting out the house and land in 1870 after her husband died.  She moved back to Raffeen with Elizabeth and George after their marriage. Where are George and Elizabeth buried also Dan and Margaret O'Driscoll?  John Barry was born in 1888 at Raffeen House and registered at Carrigalane if that helps.

Thanking you for any help or advice given.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Your family is elusive. I could not find a civil marriage index record for the couple around 1886. Raffeen is in Liscleary civil parish which is very close to Carrigagline. I searched which has the records for the Diocese of Cork and Ross (free Irish government site) but did not find the baptismal record for Elizabeth. You may want to try the parish register which has records up to 1880.
