Carrigans (Irish: An Carraigín) (Little Rock) is a village in The Laggan, a district in the east of County Donegal, Ireland. The village is located only a short distance from the River Foyle on the R236 regional road.
Carrigans was, in the past, the centre of a major flax and linen producing area and had one of the largest flax mills in Donegal, before the demise of the flax industry in the 1950s. Commercial salmon fishing was also a major employer in the past.
Dunmore House, on the edge of the village, is owned by John McFarland of the McFarland Baronets.
Police officer James Starritt was born in Carrigans.
