It is believed the Pope will tour through Dublin on his Popemobile on 26th August ahead of saying mass at Phoenix Park.

Huge crowds are expected to gather to catch a glimpse of the Pontiff.

Dublin Live newspaper has speculated that the Pope will take the same route through Dublin as the annual St Patrick’s Day parade.

That would see the tour begin at the Garden of Remembrance, then onto O’Connell Street and past Dame Street towards Christ Church.

It is expected the route will go in a circle around the city and finish at Phoenix Park where the Pope will give mass in front of hundreds of thousands of spectators.

The route has been chosen to enable maximum capacity and maximum security.
