TOWERS family in Tipperary

Does anyone have any information about the TOWERS family from Tipperary and Offaly?

My great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Towers, was from the RC and civil parish of Eglish in Offaly (then County Kings). This is near Birr and the border with Tipperary.

Towers is a very unusual name in both counties but there are more in Tipperary. I'm trying to trace back the origin of the family.

Elizabeth Towers was born about 1820, married Michael Herrick in Eglish, County Kings, in 1841. They had six children baptized there. I have death certs for Michael and five of the children from NYC.

Hoping someone can tell me something about the Towers name in Tipperary or Offaly/Kings. Thanks.
