This chapter discusses the highlights of the Catholic Convention of December 1792 in Ireland. It discusses the electoral arrangements put forward by the Catholics which called for each parish to nominate two electors to attend county meetings where delegates to the national convention would be chosen. It explains that arrangements were mostly formulated by Theobald Wolfe Tone and John Keogh. This chapter also describes the stridency of the response of the Protestant Ascendancy to this event which was the first in that century.
