NOTES: The first three or four conventions on the list must have been small - really large meetings. There may have been a convention at Rathmolyon in 1902 but I am not certain. From 1912 onwards other conventions in addition to Crocknacrieve were started north and south, but as I have no record I have not included them.

The following is a list of the families at whose homes the conventions were held.

Crocknacrieve (John West)
Derrygonnelly (the workers stayed in David Donaldsons)
Rathmolyon (Hughes)
Willsburgh (Falkiners)
Nutfield (McClungs)

Eglish (Richardsons)
Derrybard (Humphreys) One year|
Carnteel (Reids)
Ballybay (Crookes, now Jennings)
Taylors town (Kellys)
Mullaghmeen (Wests)
Greenhill (Fugues)
Gortaloughan (Reids)
Downpatrick (Porters)
