In October 1879, over 12,000 people assembled at Cnoc Gaibhín in Corrandulla to hear Michael Davitt address a meeting of the Land League.

Nuair a bhí an Dáibhéideach ag dul thart tháinig sé go Cnoc Gáibhín i gCor an Dola agus bhí cruinniú mór ann. Tháinig daoine ó gach aird ann agus tháinig scata fear adtuaidh ó Mhuidheo ag máirseáil. Bhí picí bréige agus buidhean ceol acu - Patrick Concannon, Schools Folklore Collection, S.N. Anach Cuain, 1939. [When Davitt was travelling around he came to Gavin's Hill in Corrandulla and there was a big meeting there. People came from all around and a group of men came marching from Mayo. They carried false pikes and had a marching band.] The meeting comprised contingents from Cummer, Lackagh, Claregalway, Headford, and Tuam.
