Marble works in Co. Cork

Does anyone know where the marble works would be found in County Cork in the 1860's? Does anyone know how long it would take to learn the trade of marble cutter?

I am also searching for the area in Co. Cork where I would find Goggin, O'Dea and Madigans living near each other and yet be near a marble quarry.

None of the maps that I have show any areas that are listed with quarries.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks

My ancestor, John Hodnett, who lived in Virginia USA prior to the Revolutionary War is thought to have once lived in Cork, Ireland. He placed an ad in a Virgiania newspaper on his arrival asking for information about his father-in-law.

Searching for the Madigan family who came to Peosta, Iowa following the Trappist Monks.
Michael Madigan was son of Ellen O'Brien and James Madigan. His brothers were James and Albert. Sisters were Josephine, Ellen, Magdalen, Agnes and Molly. I think that I have this straight. Sister Magdalen became one of the first nuns at Sinsinawa, and was also the burser. Sure would like to find out about this family ancestry. Thanks in advance,
Carol in CO

There is a marble works place in Connemara -- the Joyce family (as in James Joyce, the writer) is very much involved with this place, I believe.

Sorry I do not know history of the family but I believe his farm is now part of our family farm. See link above and section 32 33 of vernon township Dubuque county IA plat map of 1874. they probably went to church at Holy family Church across the road from the monestary. The abby has a web site also

Jane-- My mother-in-law's mother was a Hodnett (from VA). Her family traces back to Ayres and Mary McGehee, through their son John (Benjamin's brother.) I am trying to find out where in Co. Cork Ireland the Hodnett's originated. Any ideas? Thanks!
