A church in Galway is revolutionising Ash Wednesday by operating a drive-through service.

St Patrick's Church in Glenamaddy, Co Galway will have a drive through service on 1 March so parishioners on-the-go can receive ashes, reports the Farmers Journal.

The service will allow busy church-goers to receive ashes without having to leave their cars.

Those attending will drive in one gate, receive ashes in their vehicle and drive out another gate.

It will run from 8am until 9:30am outside the church, meaning there's no excuse for not getting ashes on the day.

We wonder if this will catch on around the rest of Ireland...
