There is a long tradition of field preaching in the Methodist Church. Originally John Wesley and his preachers adopted the practice in order to reach the working classes who, in the 18th century, would not go to church as they lacked respectable clothes and felt unwelcome.
The term "field preaching" was used even when the venue was not literally a field. It might have been a market place, a crossroads, or anywhere else that a crowd could be gathered.
Today such meetings are held in fields, and are important gatherings of Methodists and their friends, partly to honour a tradition, and partly as a social event, though primarily, of course, for worship. Several of them are held annually throughout the country. Some of these have a very long succession, while others are quite modern revivals of traditions allowed to lapse earlier in the century.
The Drimoleague Methodist Church Field Meeting takes place every may in Meenies, Drimoleague.
