With a lot of the country going into Pope mode for the arrival of Pope Francis' arrival on Saturday, there has been plenty of promotion and merchandise popping up surrounding the event.
In the last few months we have seen the Lollipope, t-shirts and flags hitting shops but this week something on a fairly larger scale hit the streets.
Paddy Power has landed with their Drive-Thru Confession Box. The sinning stop is on Conyngham Road near the Phoenix Park entrance just where thousands will be going this weekend for the Pope's mass.
A Paddy Power spokesperson has said:
“Ireland has changed a lot since the last Pope’s visit – gay marriage is legal, we’ve repealed the Eighth Amendment, and even secretly cheered for England in the World Cup,” a Paddy Power spokesperson said.
“With decades worth of sins clocked up since then, we’re providing a convenient means to complete your contrition with your keys still in the ignition.”
“And if the Catholic hierarchy have anything they’d like to get off their chests too, they are more than welcome to take a spin through our mega drive-thru confession box while they’re here.”
