Haggerty from County Cork

Haggerty from County Cork

I have run into a complete brickwall searching for parents of Lawrence Haggerty (My grandfather), born 1853, somewhere in County Cork.

The only clue I have is my mother used to say that her family came from a place called "Seven Steeples".

Has anyone ever heard of this village, town, land tract, etc.? I can not find any information on the name.

I would greatly appreciated any information.
John

John,

I came across your posting while researching my own Haggarty/Haggertys. However mine were in Newport, Monmouthshire, Wales I suspect they were from Ireland before that.

Anyways, quick google search on "Seven Steeples" brought up this photo of the Seven Steeples Graveyard
