Family still living in Ireland and England. I have been told that the Waters's in the District of Macroom are originally from Wales prior to the 1500's. The Waters migrated from Wales with the McCarthys. The McCarthys were the McCarthys of Muskerry, Kings of Munster and later Lords of the Barony.The Waters helped build the Carrigadrohid Castle which still lies in the middle of the River on a rocky island. The Welsh adopted the name GWALLTER - Walliter, Waters, Watt, Wattars - derived from the German name WALTER, from WALD " rule " + HERI " warrior ", brought by the NORMANS. I hope this information helps someone someday. Caoihain Padraig O'Tuairisce
