Knock, Co. Mayo

Knock, County Mayo

Knock (Irish: An Cnoc, meaning The Hill – but now more generally known in Irish as Cnoc Mhuire, "Hill of Mary" is a village in County Mayo, Ireland. Its notability is derived from the Knock Shrine, at which the Mary, together with Saint Joseph and John the Evangelist, supposedly appeared on 21 August 1879. In the 20th century Knock became one of Europe's major Catholic Marian shrines, alongside Lourdes and Fatima. One and a half million pilgrims visit Knock Shrine annually. Pope John Paul II, a supporter of devotion to the Mary, visited Knock in 1979 to commemorate the centenary of the apparition.
