The group, which was set up to examine possible changes to the constitution, has announced the series of meetings to look into further possible changes to the constitution.
The convention meets again next month to consider removing the constitutional offence of blasphemy, but will then have around two months to put forward any other suggestions of its own choosing.
Meetings will be held across the country to hear ideas from citizens on other parts of the constitution that should be changed.
"We already have a couple of thousand submissions about this," Chairman Tom Arnold said, "but we felt that in order to engage more fully with the public, we would have a series of meetings around the country."
The dates of the meetings are:
University College Cork
Waterford City Hall
Dublin City University
Royal Irish Academy
Sligo Borough Council
Monaghan Educational Campus
