Query: Catholic Association,1820s

I am rewriting a chapter on the Catholic Association of 1823-1829 (part of a book project on political mass organizations, c 1820-1850), and I am looking for accounts of the way the Catholic Association functioned on a local (parish) level. How exactly was the Catholic Rent levied by parish priests, how were simultaneous meetings and petitions organized, and what observations did local people (including local magistrates, protestant/catholic clergy, critics) make about the activities of the Catholic Association in the 1820s?
