Sketching in holy water today in Knock Shrine as the rain pelted down for the start of the Bank Holiday.I persisted with wrinkled pages and a soggy bottom outside the shrine…Dried off with soup and sandwiches and a quick sketch from a cafe.Knock is awash with souvenir shops. You can pick up holy water bottles ranging from the full litre sizes featured above, to tiny handbag sized ones shown below. If that’s not your thing, maybe a tiny ‘Our Lady of Knock’ font or a glow in the dark Holy Mary.
