Dáma Chnoc Mhuire
A Cogar documentary for TG4
TX: 23.12.07
Duration: 25 mins

Directed by Mary Brophy, this Cogar documentary tells the story of one self-effacing woman's determination and foresight - a woman who achieved so much against a backdrop of an often resistant clergy and in an almost forgotten Ireland.

In her lifelong involvement with Knock, Judy herself interviewed some of the original witnesses to the Apparition. She oversaw the search for cures as part of the Second Commission of Inquiry into Knock. In 1954, the Marian Year, Judy led the handmaidens and stewards to Rome where the Knock Banner was blessed by Pope Pius XII, one of her proudest moments. 'The first privilege the Vatican gave to Knock Shrine'.
