Since I went to the Knock Shrine for the first time I put it on the must see for our visitors. So I have been back there pretty often. It kind of grows on me.

Here some more pictures of that to me at least bizarre spot in Ireland.

Thoughts Aside: Usually travel agencies assemble exemplary vacation packages, complete with a discount hotel and really cheap airline tickets. This is because all year round, they keep their eye on airline tickets deals as well as other discounts. Most agencies often include cheap rental cars in their deals too.

    Your first pictures of Knock are quite appealing and show the true meaning to many people, as illustrated by the lady praying & the young man lighting a candle. You then take upon yourself the opportinity to attack the Late Pope, highlight the donation to the shrine box (you must have really searched for that)followed up by the pious objects that are for sale in the local shops. You say it is a bizarre spot, I would say it is a special spot, Our Lady visited here. On your many visits to Knock, I am surprised at the attitude & picture you psint of this Pilgrim Site. May I suggest on your next visit that you sit down comfortably and take in the grace that happened in this village. Hopefully you will experience the magnitude of Knock & decent from your attacks on Ireland’s most valued treasure.

    POH,

    this is my point of view of Knock and as I may suggest I refer to the freedom of speech. Also, you should think about whom attacks whom!

    Your photos are good but I see no photo of the statues which represent the original apparition. If you look up “Knock shrine” in wikipedia you will a good photo of these very impressive statues.

    Hi, I really enjoyed your pictures of the shrine at Knock, Ireland. I was wondering if you had a hi res image of the very first picture at the top of the page (the one of the church) maybe you could email me? I have a very good friend from Ireland who would love to have a copy of that beautiful picture.

    Thank you very much.

    I have been visiting Knock Shrine for twenty years and your pictures describe exactly what you see at Knock except for the centre-piece which puts before us the four positive and essential elements of Christianity i.e. St Joseph – humility, Our Lady – prayer, St John – Scripture and the Law, the lamb on the altar – The sacrifice of the mass. (see “knock Shrine” for picture etc in Wikipedia)
