The Archdiocese of Dublin has said it is investigating plans for a large-scale drive-in Mass at the car park at Leopardstown Racecourse in Dublin on the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi on June 14.

A spokesperson for Archbishop Diarmuid Martin told the Irish Independent the matter was being investigated and the event was not authorised by the Diocese or parish but appeared to have been organised by a private company.

"The Diocese does not approve of drive-in liturgies, which do not satisfy the true community dimension of people coming together to worship and have no roots in Catholic tradition," Dr Martin's spokesperson warned.
