We stopped here on our way from Galway to Derry. It has the most beautiful mosaic scene on the wall of the church. Definitely worth a short stop to see it. Very modern inside.

Our Blessed Lady, St Joseph, and St John appeared at the south gable wall of Knock Parish Church. The church was being renovated in anticipation of the Pope next year, but there was a replica in the beautiful church.
