Our Lady of Knock

Our Lady of Knock is a marian religious title given within Roman Catholicism to the Blessed Virgin Mary. It refers to an apparition in which the Virgin is supposed to have appeared, along with St. Joseph and St. John the Evangelist, in the then small Irish village of Knock in 1879. Another title given to Our Lady of Knock is Queen of Ireland. A Roman Catholic Commission of Inquiry investigated the alleged apparition twice, in 1879 and again in 1936. In both cases it ruled the apparition valid and the testaments of the alleged witnesses truthful.
