Duffy (O'Duffy), Hugh (Ó DUFAIGH, Cúchonnacht) (c.1640–1721?), Franciscan friar and witness against Archbishop Oliver Plunkett (qv), was probably a member of the ‘Mac A'Parson’ branch of the O'Duffy family of Clontibret, Co. Monaghan, that fostered Fr Felim O'Neill, OFM, son of the executed confederate catholic Sir Phelim O'Neill (qv), ‘Féilimí na ndóiteán’, of Kinard, Co. Tyrone. Hugh Duffy was probably the son of Cownagh (Cúchonnacht) O'Duffy of Kilmore in nearby Tyholland.
