Although the departure point for your ancestors was Mayo, the most common places to find DUIGNANs are Roscommon(considered their ancestral home),Longford,Leitrim and Cavan. My father was a DUIGNAN from Longford and his people had lived there for several centuries, close to the Cavan border. The name HENNIGAN I know nothing about but it may be an Anglicized version of an older Gaelic name.
