The altar of the Irish Madonna in the cathedral of Gyor, Hungary.
The painting was brought from Ireland to Hungary in the 17th century by the bishop of Clonfert in County Galway, at a time when Catholics were severely persecuted in Ireland.
In 1697 the painting is believed to have cried tears of blood during a celebration of Mass. The miracle coincided with an anti-Catholic bill being passed in the Irish Parliament.
