ATTRACTIONS IN COUNTY MAYO
Knock is Ireland's National Marian Shrine. On the 21st August 1879, Our Lady, Saint Joseph and Saint John the Evangelist appeared at the south gable of Knock Parish Church. This apparition was witnessed by 15 people. From this miraculous occurance Knock has grown to the status of an internationally recognised Marian Shrine. The personal pilgrimage of Pope John Paul II has inspired an even greater devotion to the Shrine. From April 26 to October 11 1998 there are seven public masses daily, public ceremonies on Sundays at 14:30 and weekdays at 14:15. The Knock Novena is held annually from August 14 to 22 with masses twice daily at 15:00 and 20:30.

Clare Island has many other historic remains and varied flora and fauna.
The Moy Valley is a haven of natural and unspoilt beauty that combines a unique blend of rugged mountains, lakes, sea and the River Moy, world famous for its salmon. The entire valley is renowned for its angling with over 100 game and course fishing waters from which to choose. The Moy Valley is bound by two mountain ranges, the Ox to the east, and Nephin to the west. Ideal for walking holidays, there are magnificent routes along the scenic North Mayo coast, and theme walks such as the great Famine Walk at Bonniconlon and the Sculpture Trail along the North Coast. Trained guides accompany walkers, giving commentaries on the heritage.

Among the many interesting attractions to visit in Kiltimagh are: The Town Museum, the Stationmaster's House Arts Exhibition Centre and the Sculpture Park, all to be found in the grounds of the tastefully restored old railway station, and well worth a visit.
