Drew Quite numerous: Meath, Belfast and scattered in Munster. Ir. Ó Draoi, but see also Drea.
Mac an Druaidh Drew, Drury: líon beag: Sligeach-Tír Conaill. Tá mearbhall annso le Drae & Draoi, q.v. - b'fhéidir go bhfuil siad bunaithe ar an bhfocal draoi/druadh a chiallaíonn sagart na sean-Cheilteach. Tá an sloinne Sasanach Drury san áireamh, leis.
Ó Draoi Drew: líon beag sa tír - is sloinne Sasanach é de ghnáth ach bhí clann Ghaelach i dTuathmhumhain. Tugann de Bhulbh Ó Druaidh mar chomh-shloinne. Is ionann draoi agus druadh, dar ndó.
