From our base at the family run Downhill Inn, Balinna, we visit the pilgrimage village of Knock, picturesque Westport and historic Sligo. Since the Apparition of Mary on the 21st of August 1879, pilgrims and visitors have been welcomed in the village of Knock, County Mayo and to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock.
