DUIGNAN from Westmeath, Ireland
I'm searching for information on my DUIGNAN family from Westmeath, Ireland.They moved to Argentina c. 1880 and remained there until c. 1893 when they returned to Mullingar, Westmeath, Ireland.

Several children were born into the family during that time, but the one I'm most interested in is Catherine Ellen DUIGNAN.
The placenames in Argentina that have been passed down to me, are probably phonetic spellings.Can anyone decypher what the actual spellings/locations might be:
Archtuss Rep., Argentina
Also, I'm curious as to why an Irish family would go to Argentina.What was the draw to that far away country?
