Our Lady's Shrine at Rocklands

This evening we had the annual May devotions at the local shrine to the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Rocklands. This beautiful shrine was erected in May 1955 and has continued to be a sanctuary of peace and devotion for the people of Wexford. Wayfarers pause to pray there, whilst the practice of gathering in groups to recite the Rosary has become common.

The Shrine, which is brilliantly illuminated at night, can turn a travellers’ thoughts to things spiritual
