TY trip to Knock

Transition year students from St.Brigids Secondary School Killarney travelled to Knock on the 11th of February.

The girls spent just over two hours exploring the apparation site, and were then free to go and fill their holy water bottles to bring home to parents and grandparents and even browse through souvenir shops or avail of a light refreshment before departing for home.

Most of the girls had not been to Knock before and were really happy to make the long journey there and to witness the beauty of our own Marian shrine and become aware of its message of hope.
