Can you help identify the missing women here?

At a special convention on 5 February 1922, Cumann na mBan rejected the articles of agreement for the treaty with Great Britain and Ireland.

Mary MacSwiney brought forward a resolution that reaffirmed allegiance to the Republic of Ireland. Jennie Wyse Power proposed an amendment to accept. 63 members voted in favour, while an overwhelming 419 voted against.

This photo shows 23 members of the Executive of Cumman na mBan.
