🏆 Ireland’s Favourite Hymn – Competition Result 🏆
‘Lady of Knock’ has been selected at the National Ploughing Championships 2022 as Ireland’s favourite hymn. It narrowly pipped ‘Amazing Grace’ garnering 1,264 votes over 1,238 for the runner-up. Congratulations Dana Rosemary Scallon on giving us a much-loved and enduring song and thank you to all who took part.
The competition was organised by Kildare & Leighlin Diocese and although there was some tough competition involved, ‘Lady of Knock’ is a much-loved hymn that resonates with people at home and abroad and has become synonymous with Knock and its unique history. Written by Dana Rosemary Scallon in 1980, the hymn has been performed countless times at Knock Shrine during so many important historic Masses and events, including during the visit of Pope Francis to Knock in 2018.
