Knock Shrine Tour
Knock Shrine in Knock, County Mayo is an international place of prayer and pilgrimage where many visitors come to visit. The Knock story starts on the 21st of August 1879 when fifteen people from the village witnessed an apparition of Our Lady, St Joseph, St John the Evangelist, an altar, cross and a lamb. Following this miraculous event, numerous cures were reported, the first miracle cure was that of Delia Gordon, a young girl from the nearby village of Claremorris who was cured of deafness. Since then pilgrims have come to Knock in search of healing, reconciliation and peace.
The personal pilgrimage of Pope John Paul 11 in 1979 to commemorate the centenary of the apparition and the visit of Mother Teresa of Calcutta in 1993 inspired an even greater devotion to the shrine.
