We recently received research from Nobber Parish in northern Co. Meath, just a few miles south of Cavan.
Several Dignams were mentioned.
The tithe applotment book (1826) shows a Patt Dignan holding land in Cregg townland, Nobber Parish.
These records are from the Nobber Catholic Church.

July 21 1832 Rose was born to James and Bridget Shalvoy of Buracom (same family as above).Thomas Dignam was a sponsor. Jan 30 1787 Michael Clarke and Ann Martin were married. Witnesses were Phillip and Thomas Lignam (most likely Dignam) Feb 2 1810 Michael Clarke married Ann Dignam (she from College townland).John and Owen Dignam were witnesses.
