Marian Shrine, Midleton
Our Lady of Lourdes is a Roman Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary venerated in honour of the Marian apparitions that reportedly occurred in 1858 in the vicinity of Lourdes in France. A statue (“Our Lady of Lourdes”) was placed in the grotto where the first apparition had occurred and it was solemnly dedicated on 4 April 1864 in presence of 20,000 pilgrims. Since then, the statue has been widely copied and reproduced in shrines. This shrine at Midleton was erected in 1958.
