Musical strikes the right chord

I ENJOYED Ken Sweeney's piece on the "Foggy Boggy Musical" (Irish Independent, October 1) very much. He has hit the right note and while everyone will acknowledge the Herculean work of Monsignor James Horan, the real facts must be clarified.

When Judge Liam Coyne and his wife, Dame Judy Coyne, founded the "Society for Promoting the Cause of Knock Shrine" in 1935, their plans included improving road and rail approaches to the shrine, as well as the gable and in due course, a new larger church.

At the same time, they submitted plans for an airport.
