Maybe should be Haggard with the Kilkenny accent making the d harsh and sounding a bit like Haggart. John McCullen and friends at http://www.meathfieldnames.com/index.php/discoveries-of-note/24-a-selection-of-other-discoveries have The Haggard with photos and more info.

"I let the pigs out in the haggard. Our homestead had two litle paddocks or fields beside the house, one uphill and one downhill from the house. These were the Upper Haggard and the Lower Haggard. The hay Reek was in the Upper Haggard."
