According to Irish historian/genealogists, the DUIGNAN sept(clan) descends from Maine,son of Niall of the Nine Hostages whose progeny settled in western Meath and in the modern county of Longford.The earliest mention of an O'DUIGENAN in the annals is in 1296, when an archdeacon of Breifne of that name died.
