‘Tree Of Hope’ Planted At Knock Shrine

This afternoon , we welcomed  the National Traveller Mental Health Network to Knock Shrine for a special Mass to mark Traveller Mental Health Awareness day which takes place on October 8th each year.
The National Traveller Mental Health Network was established in 2018 and officially launched in 2019. The N.T.M.H.N   is a collective of Travellers and Traveller Organisations across Ireland whose goal is to develop a collective space that is Traveller led, where local, regional and national Traveller mental health issues are highlighted, discussed and addressed.
Fr. Paul O’Driscoll , PP, Parish of the Travelling People planted a commemorative ‘Tree of Hope’ at Knock Shrine to mark the occasion.
