Kentucky Irish American, 22nd June, 1901 p1
A very successful meeting was held at Tierneevan, near Gort, County Galway on Sunday, for the purpose of establishing a branch of the United Irish League.
In the absence of the Rev. Father Sweeny the chair was taken by John Quinn. The Chairman briefly and clearly explained the objects of the meeting, and said that it was gratifying to see the people of the parish supporting the cause of the United Irish League. W. J. Duffy, M.P. and James Lynham, who were received with loud cheers, addressed the meeting. A branch of the United Irish League was then formed and over eighty members enrolled. D. F. Burke was the first to set the example by giving a generous subscription. John Quinn was appointed President; Martin Nestor Treasurer and Michael Mitchell Secretary.
