Knock shrine a highlight of recent Ireland trip

Johnny Cash wrote the song "40 Shades of Green" on the airplane while returning from a trip to Ireland. On Oct. 1, 38 people left on a 10-day pilgrimage to the Emerald Isle. As we traveled from the west coast to the east coast of Ireland, I'm sure we saw those 40 shades of green.

When we arrived at the Shannon airport the morning of Oct. 2, we were blessed to be met by our knowledgeable guide, Noel Kissane. He is a history teacher and has spent 15 years as a tour guide.
