Yes, Biddy is the usual diminutive form of Bridget. Actually, at that time and location, she was probaby called Bríd by the family, which was probably still Irish-speaking, and it may have been the parish priest who used the anglicized form of her name.
The Catholic parish records for Kilglass (in Irish, Cill Ghlas) are available going back to 1825, so if Ann's children were baptized there, you should be able to find their records. The records are available at this link:
The Catholic parish records for Castleconnor (in Irish, Caisleán Mhic Conchúir) only go back to 1854, but you can access them using the interactive map at the above site.
You can find more inffo about the civil parish of Kilglass (an administrative district) at this link: https://www.townlands.ie/sligo/kilglass2/
There are links there to more info about each of the townlands in the parish, and one of the townlands is Cabragh (in Irish, An Chabrach), which might be the place name you asked about. At the link for each townland, there are further links to records in the 1901 and 1911 censuses, as well as Griffith's Valuation (mid-1800's). I checked Griffith's Valuation for the surname Rogan (in Irish, Ó Ruadhagáin) in Cabragh, and there were none listed as holding tenancies there at that time, but interestingly there was one tenant named Orme (the second part of the name you have above), which is not at all a common surname in the area. If you locate a baptismal record, it will usually state the name of the townland in which the family lived.
.There doesn't appear to be a townland with a name like Cabre in Castleconnor civil parish, but you can check out that parish further at this link:
Easky (in Irish, Iascaigh) is not in Kilglass, but is instead a separate civil parish located to the northeast of Kilglass, and you can see more info about it here:
The Catholic parish for the same area is spelled Easkey. The parsh records available online only go back as far as 1864, and you can find them here:

Thanks for all the information Kevin.
I think it looks promising that Patrick Rogan (1769-1839) and Ann Rogan (1771-1845) are my 6TH Great Grandparents.
Death records on RootsIreland gave me the exact dates of birth and death. These closely aligned with estimated dates I worked with before.
Oral history in the family was the Rogans were from County Sligo. Patrick & Ann Rogan both died in Kilglass Parish.
I have more than one DNA Match with descendants of Michael Rogan (b.1796) who I hypothesize is the son of Patrick and Ann.
I again hypothesize my 5TH Great Grandmother Ann Rogan (b.1799) is Michael's sister.
There are also Tithe Applotment records and Griffiths Valuation revcords which line up with the above.
I however have never yet found a record for Ann Rogan in Ireland.
Ann Rogan Carolan left Ireland with her five children in 1842. Her husband had died.
I am so impressed by her travelling across an ocean to start a new life without her husband.
Ann was lost to our oral history until I found her! In the 1851 Canadian Census in Pickering near Toronto.

I guess I should add I knew through research in Canada Ann's five children were born in Easky.
Easky is near to Kilglass Parish and Castleconnor is where Michael Rogan was living.
